Back-to-school tax-free holidays this week
By The Associated Press
ATLANTA (AP) Georgians will get a sales tax break this week on certain purchases because of legislation signed in April by the governor.
The back-to-school tax-free holidays are Friday and Saturday, Aug. 1-2. Gov. Nathan Deal signed the law extending the tax-free holidays for two years on April 14. The law also includes a tax-free holiday for energy-efficient dishwashers, refrigerators and other appliances Oct. 3-5.
Officials estimate the combined two years of tax breaks will cost the state roughly $145 million.
