AUSTIN, TX - Texas's highly successful annual Sales Tax Holiday is scheduled this year from Friday, August 10th through midnight Sunday, August 12th and will offer Texans an opportunity to save millions in sales tax on clothing and various back-to-school items. With the new school year almost upon us, the timing is perfect for students of all ages to stock up on clothes and supplies.
"The back-to-school season is an excellent opportunity for our Texas families to find bargains and low prices, and at the same time is an economic driver for our local businesses. I encourage you to take full advantage of the tax holiday and save more of your hard-earned dollars by shopping during this coming weekend," Senator Hinojosa stated.
Texans who shop during this weekend will not have to pay taxes on clothing, school supplies, or footwear priced under $100. Included are items such as baby clothes, diapers, and work uniforms. Items sold online and layaway plans qualify, as well. The following link to the Texas Comptroller's webpage will provide more information and a complete list of tax-free items:
