FORSYTH COUNTY — While most students probably don’t want to think about it, the Forsyth County school system will open its doors for the 2014-15 academic year on Aug. 7. The good news — for parents, at least — is that they will have time to do a little tax-free, back-to-school shopping before classes start. The annual Georgia Sales Tax Holiday will run from 12:01 a.m. Friday to midnight Saturday.
