Tax-free weekend for back to school

imagesCAKOCRO6Time once again for local parents to start planning for back to school. New clothes, books and supplies to prepare for the 2013-14 school year. Glynn county schools starts August 8th, 2013. Brantley county schools starts August 7th, 2013. Camden county schools starts July 13th, 2013. McIntosh county schools starts August 14th, 2013.

Recently announced were the dates for Georgia’s tax free weekend. I hate to be the messenger on this one! Unfortunately, the tax free weekend this year happens to fall on August 9th and 10th. Which happens to be after the start of school for Glynn and Brantley counties. This is surely not welcomed news for most local retailers or parents.

The rules for the tax free weekend are as follows: Tax-free items include general school supplies with a sales of price of $20 or less, computers and computer-related accessories with a sales price of $1,000 or less. Clothing items and footwear with a sales price of $100 or less.
