NFIB: Back-to-School tax holiday a chance to support small businesses

July 31, 2023

NFIB State Director Ben Homeyer says South Carolina’s upcoming back-to-school sales tax holiday is a great opportunity for people to help local businesses during difficult economic times. This year’s back-to-school tax holiday on computers, printers, school supplies, clothing and accessories, shoes, and certain bed and bath items will be Aug. 4-6. Click here for details.

“South Carolina’s sales tax holiday was created to provide a little financial relief for families and individuals, but it’s also good for Main Street businesses,” Homeyer said.

“When you support small businesses, you help the local economy,” Homeyer said. “Small businesses create jobs and support our schools and community groups. Shopping small is a great way to support the businesses that support the community throughout the year.”
