COLUMBIA, SC (FOX Carolina) - The South Carolina Department of Revenue said the state's annual sales tax-free weekend will return August 7 - 9.

Computers, clothes, and school supplies can be purchased free of sales tax during the holiday. Shoppers will not have to pay the state's 6 percent sales tax or any applicable local sales taxes on those items. 

Tax-free items include computers, printers, school supplies, clothing and accessories, footwear, and certain bed and bath items. 

Items that are not tax-free during the Sales Tax Holiday include digital cameras, smartphones, jewelry, cosmetics, eyewear, wallets, watches, furniture, rental clothing or footwear, and items for use in a trade or business.

Last year, the SCDOR said South Carolina shoppers bought more than $21.7 million in tax-free items during the Sales Tax Holiday.
