Georgia's Sales Tax Holiday weekend

It's hard to believe it's that time of year... back-to-school! If you want to save big on your back-to-school purchases, this is a good weekend to do it.

From 8:00 a.m. Friday through 10:00 p.m. Saturday you can buy clothes, computers and school supplies tax free. The Sales Tax Holiday also includes items that aren't back-to-school related.
