Shoppers Spend During Tax Free Holiday
Back to school shoppers hit the stores in Central Georgia on Saturday for the final day of the state's first tax free holiday in three years.
The tax free items include general school supplies costing $20 or less and electronics up to a $1,000. According to a press release from the governor's office, the holiday is expected to save people in Georgia up to $60 million.
"I love it,” shopper Nick Dacus said. “I'm glad they do it. They need to do it every year. The more the merrier in my opinion really. It saves money and with the economy today that's what you need."
The holiday began on Friday and continues until midnight on Saturday. People can also look forward to another tax holiday on green energy goods this October.
