roosy, i am confused. i took this insert, directly off the tax site…..
Sales and Use Tax
South Carolina’s sales and use tax rate is 5 percent. Neither Horry County nor Georgetown County has a local option sales and use tax. Prescriptions, dental prosthetics and hearing aids are exempt from the sales tax. Those over the age of 85 are exempt from 1 percent of the sales tax. A maximum sales tax of $300 is imposed on the purchase of motor vehicles, including recreational vehicles, boats, motorcycles and airplanes.
Each gallon of gasoline is taxed at 16 cents. This tax is included in the price per gallon at the gasoline pump.
there is no mention on the site, of a visitor’s tax.
i would not be happy, paying more than 5 percent!
