MARIETTA — Some of Cobb’s largest shopping centers and malls are gearing up for a busy tax-free weekend.
The 2013 Sales Tax Holiday, which will be in effect statewide Friday and Saturday, allows customers to avoid paying taxes on a number of school-related items such as clothes, computers and classroom supplies.
Cobb has a 6 percent sales tax. Four percent of that goes to the state, 1 percent to the county government’s special purpose local option sales tax, and 1 percent to a school SPLOST. All 6 percent will be waived during the holiday.
