2014 Georgia Back to School Tax free shopping

It's that time again folks, the back to school tax free shopping for kids school supplies, computers, and clothes. Where did summer go?  Can it really be time to go back to school.  I don't have children at home for "back to school" anymore, but my daughter will be back in college (again) this fall.  That girl has ambition!

It's good that the tax free sale is before school starts this year.  Last it wasn't.  It will be August 1st and 2nd. Below is a link to what is exempt from taxes and some items that are not exempt as well.

Press release from Georgia Department of Revenue announcing dates. The Rules and Regulations about what is exempt can be be found here.

I might have to take Abigail school supply shopping tomorrow if she's up for fighting the crowds.  And there will be crowds.

Need a place to board your dogs around Lake Sinclair?
