Georgia's Sales Tax Holiday is August 10th and 11th, so if you're planning a big purchase like a computer, you may want to wait till then.
Here's a great question I got from a Viewer on my Valerie Hoff Ways to Save Facebook Page: Are iPads included in the sales tax holiday? The answer is yes, as long as you're buying a tablet computer that's priced under $1000.00
The list is a bit quirky.For example all types of coats and jackets will be tax free but not umbrellas. You won't pay tax on most computers but will be taxed on a computer case or briefcase.
