Sales Tax Holiday is Aug. 8-10
Shoppers can save money on certain items priced under $100
during the state’s annual sales tax holiday scheduled for
Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 8 -10.
The law exempts most clothing, footwear, school supplies and
backpacks priced under $100 from sales tax, which could save
shoppers about $8 on every $100 they spend during the weekend.
Lists of apparel and school supplies that may be purchased tax
free can be found at www.TexasTaxHoliday.org.
This year, shoppers will save an estimated $82.7 million in
state and local sales taxes during the Sales Tax Holiday. The tax
holiday weekend has been an annual event since 1999.
