CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Attention, shoppers: South Carolina’s annual tax-free weekend begins at midnight on Friday.

Parents, teachers, and even college students can save on myriad back-to-school items during the state’s 72-hour tax-free period including computers, printers, school supplies, clothing, and even some bed and bath items.

Officials say eligible items can be purchased online and in-store without paying the state’s 6% Sales Tax and any applicable local taxes during Tax-Free Weekend.

South Carolina shoppers bought more than $26.2 million in tax-free items during the annual event last year, according to the South Carolina Department of Revenue.

Tax-free weekend runs through 11:59 p.m. on Sunday.
