ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia's sales tax holiday is set for Aug. 9-10.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Friday that at least 17 states have tax-free periods planned this year, mostly for spending on school items.
In Georgia, businesses won't be charging sales tax on clothes, shoes, school supplies and computers on those two days in August set by the state.
There are limits. A pair of shoes and an item of clothing can't cost more than $100. School supplies can't cost more than $20 per item, with a $1,000 limit on computers and accessories.
The newspaper reports Georgia has had an annual sales tax holiday for more than a decade. There were no sales tax holidays in 2009, 2010 and 2011, when state officials said they couldn't afford it.
