Need to do some back to school shopping? Looking for ways to save a little extra cash? With the North Carolina tax free holiday, you can save money by purchasing items like clothing, school supplies and computers from Friday, August 5th through Sunday, August 7th.
This tax exemption applies to:
• Clothing, footwear, and school supplies under $100
• Sports and recreation equipment under $50
• Computers under $3,500
• Computer equipment under $250
The holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, August 5th and lasts until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, August 7th.
Please note: The specific types of items that are exempt from sales tax are defined in detail for the holiday. Items are not exempt from sales tax just because they are required by a child’s school or sports team. For more detailed information, visit the North Carolina tax free weekend website.
