The Columbia, South Carolina sales tax rate of 8.00% applies to the following 23 zip codes: 29201, 29202, 29203, 29204, 29205, 29207, 29208, 29211, 29214, 29215, 29216, 29217, 29218, 29220, 29222, 29225, 29226, 29227, 29230, 29240, 29250, 29290 and 29292.

Warning: As described in the note above, some of these Columbia zip codes may be subject to a different sales tax rate due to the fact that Columbia contains four different sales tax jurisdictions.

There are approximately 68,204 people living in the Columbia area. Remember that zip code boundaries don't always match up with political boundaries (like Columbia or Richland County), so you shouldn't always rely on something as imprecise as zip codes to determine the sales tax rates at a given address.
