While North Carolina legislators decided 2013 would be the last year of the tax-free weekend, Brunswick County shoppers can still take advantage of the tax savings — in South Carolina.
The sales-tax free holiday returns Aug. 1-3 but what it saves Brunswick residents in taxes it might cost them in gasoline.
The tax holiday was signed into law in 2001 by then-Gov. Mike Easley but was eliminated as part of the Tax Reduction Act in 2013.
The House passed the act by a vote of 77-38. The state Senate passed it by a vote of 32-17.
