    So South Carolina is having it's first tax free holiday weekend starting on the 24th, of this month of course. I think this is great myself. Black Friday+no taxes kick ass. Any other state doing this?

    Lots of states do 'tax free' for back to school shopping time.

    Black friday is a good time to do it too.

    Gotta be careful though. Check the details for yours.

    Most "tax-free weekends" are only tax-free for clothes and school supplies, including computers up to a certain dollar value and any software and accessories purchased with a qualifying computer. They promote these "tax holidays", but they are really (normally) quite limited. Yours may not be so limited, but they usually are. Just make sure before you get to the checkout.:eek:

    I already checked ours. Everything except hotel and guest charges is tax free here.

    Knowing my state government, it probably would want to charge double tax this week.

    Sooo..which SC state congressman had the brilliant idea to combine the sheer madness of the 'Black Friday' shopping weekend with the irrational consumer response to tax-free weekend?

    I dunno about anybody else, but the pre-school, tax-free weekend is bad enough, with large women using one of their many children as a handheld weapon to save friggin' 8% on a pair of pants. You could point a gun at my face and tell me I had to go to Wal-mart on Black Friday and I'd tell you to shoot me. And those two things will be going on at the same time? :sly: 

    Jesus, they should have waited until next weekend to release the PS3 and Wii and those of us smart enough to stay home could have watched the outbreak of complete anarchy on CNN.

    There's already no tax on food and clothing in Minnesota. That's why the Mall of America here is so popular as a destination among those in surrounding states.

    On the plus side, at least the no tax deal lasts until Saturday at midnight. But me and a friend are going Friday morning.

    Same goes for Oregon.....where bunch of people buys homes in Washington (cause property tax is way less) and work/shop in Oregon....

    Everytime i go back home to Hawaii, i keep forgetting that there's a sales tax here (where i gotta break a bill cause i didn't bring enough spare change)....but it's only 4.167%
