"Second Amendment" sales tax holiday Nov. 27-28

South Carolina again will waive the state's sales and use tax on purchases of handguns, rifles and shotguns during this year's Second Amendment Sales Tax Holiday on Nov. 27-28.
       
The 48-hour tax break on firearm purchases begins at 12:01 a.m. Nov. 27 and continues through midnight Nov. 28. The tax exemption also applies to any local sales and use tax. The tax break does not apply to accessories such as ammunition, black powder, holsters, archery supplies and similar items. It also does not apply to the sale of antique or collectible handguns or handguns that do not fire a fixed cartridge.
       
Check the S.C. Department of Revenue for a (Pdf file) full list of exempt and non-exempt items.      

South Carolina's natural resources are essential for economic development and contribute nearly $30 billion and 230,000 jobs to the state's economy. Find out why Life's Better Outdoors.
