August 1st and 2nd will be the "Back to School" sales tax free weekend this year.

The "Back to School" sales tax-free holiday weekend is going to continue for an additional two years, announced Governor Deal.

Over the two-year time period, Georgians will save up to $143 million on back to school supplies. The weekend will take place this year on August 1st and 2nd.

"The sales tax holidays will allow Georgia's families to save money on those necessary items for school..." says Governor Deal. "This tax reform package has made our state a better place to work and raise a family, and I will continue my commitment to maintaining our status as having one of the lowest per capita taxpayer burdens in the country."

The ENERGY STAR and WaterSense appliance tax-free holiday weekends are also being extended and will take place on Oct 3rd-5th.

All volunteers receive training, free parking and a catered meal provided by Carole Parks Catering.
