Tax-Free Weekend for South Carolina Guns

Kennesaw , GA --(AmmoLand.com)-  Handguns, rifles and shotguns were cheaper on Friday and Saturday Nov. 27 and 28 because South Carolina lawmakers created a tax-free “Second Amendment Weekend.” South Carolina is the only state in the nation that has a tax-free weekend for both handguns and hunting guns.

Gunshop owners expected a surge in business for the tax-free days because buyers didn’t have to pay the 7.5 percent in state and local sales taxes. Some retailers expected to sell as many guns in two days as they typically do in a month.

South Carolina had the nation’s first tax holiday on guns last year after legislators tacked it on to a tax break on energy-efficient appliances. The state Supreme Court threw out that law in May because of an unrelated energy amendment. Lawmakers restored the gun tax break as a one-time event in the budget this year.

The 7.5 percent sales tax still applied to ammunition during the Second Amendment Weekend.
