Second Amendment Tax Holiday in South Carolina

We admit, we found it hard to believe that a State government would actually waive state sales tax to promote the sales of firearms. But it’s true. For two days, November 26 and 27, 2010, South Carolina will exempt firearms purchases from state sales and use tax. South Carolina will waive the state’s sales tax on purchases of handguns, rifles and shotguns Nov. 26-27 during its two-day annual “Second Amendment Sales Tax Holiday”, first conducted in 2008.

Tax Holiday Today and Tomorrow
The 48-hour tax break on firearm purchases begins at 12:01 a.m. Nov. 26 and continues through midnight Nov. 27. The tax exemption also applies to any local sales and use tax. While gun purchases will be exempt, you’ll still have to pay tax on ammo and accessories though. The notice of the Sales Tax Holiday explains that ammunition, black powder, gun cases, gun barrels, gun safes, holsters, and hunting clothes etc. are NOT exempt.

We salute South Carolina. At a time when many states, such as California, are doing everything possible to discourage firearm sales, and make it difficult for gun dealers to stay in business, South Carolina is giving hunters and sport shooters a break. This recognizes the fact that shooters contribute significantly to the economy and to wildlife conservation efforts.
