Georgia Sales Tax Holiday 2012 August 10 – 11

This Friday and Saturday, Georgia shopper’s can take advantage of the state’s first sales tax holiday since 2009.

According to the official Sales Tax Holiday Fact Sheet – available as a PDF on the Georgia Department of Revenue website –

During the August 10-11 sales tax holiday, the following items will be exempt:

Clothing (including footwear) with a sales price of $100.00 or less per item

Single purchases, with a sales price of $1,000.00 or less, of personal computers and personal computer-related accessories

General school supplies to be used in the classroom or in classroom-related activities with a sales price of $20.00 or less per item

My family and I live in Georgia and I’ll definitely do some comparison shopping this weekend to see if we can snag some deals.  The last thing that I want to do is make an impulse buy simply for a tax break.  I was pleased to see that “helmets” are on the list of tax-exempt items – so I’ll be on the lookout for a new baseball helmet for my son.  I coach his team an we can always use extra gear.
