For two days Georgia residents will not pay taxes on computers, clothing, shoes and school supplies
ATLANTA – Georgia retailers are getting ready for the sales tax holiday this weekend, as residents enjoy a tax break on computers, clothes and school supplies on Friday and Saturday. The sales tax holiday applies to both the 4 percent state sales tax, and any local sales taxes – in most Georgia counties shoppers will save from 7 percent to 8 percent total in taxes.
The tax holiday begins on 12:01 A.M. on August 1, 2014 and concludes at 12:00 Midnight on August 2, 2014. Many retailers say they will get an influx of shoppers looking for the tax break.
