Tax Free Weekend kicks off Friday across the state


MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Starting Friday, shoppers have an opportunity to stock up on all their back-to-school must-haves or maybe just get in a little extra shopping.

The state’s 6 percent sales tax won’t apply to most purchases. For those in Myrtle Beach, the 9 percent sales tax will be lifted.

Popular national stores and big box stores are participating, as well as most local businesses.
