- Clothing and footwear with a sales price of $100.00 or less per item
- A single purchase, with a sales price of $1,000.00 or less, of personal computers and personal computer- related accessories

So, now would be a great time to get out and get some clothes for the kids, or yourself for that matter. (I’m seeing some new shoes!) as well as general school supplies. My office supplies are pretty stocked up, but I’ll be looking to see what I might save a few pennies on since I won’t have to pay the sales tax!
Happy Georgia Sales Tax Holiday!
