  • 6% in upstate SC. 0% on unprepared groceries, an additional 2.5% hospitality tax on restaurant meals (maybe hotels, too, but I've never had a reason to stay at one around here). 6% I believe is the state-wide sales tax; when it was 5%, there were a few counties who added an extra percent, but the ones I know of kept it at 6% after the increase a few years ago.
