The sales holiday was created as one way to save money on essentials, but there’s a few rules: Items are only tax free if they cost less than $100. Many items, such as student clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks, sell for under $100, and thus are exempt from sales and use taxes during this weekend.
Under the tax holiday exemption, shoppers can save about $8 on every $100 spent.
In Spring Branch ISD, please visit your neighborhood campus website for school supply lists, or call the campus directly. Some stores may have campus lists, too.
Tax-free clothing and supplies include:Standard School Supplies Items
- Backpacks/Book Bags
- Composition Books
- School Uniforms
