Plan Ahead for Texas Sales Tax Holiday, Aug. 11-13

The Texas Legislature has set Aug. 11-13, a Friday through Sunday period, for this year’s annual sales tax holiday on many Back to School related items priced at less than $100. Popular tax holiday items range from student clothing and footwear to backpacks and school supplies.

Depending on the city or county sales tax involved, the Texas Comptroller says the tax-free weekend could save smart shoppers up to $8 on every $100 spent. Texas’ sales tax holiday includes qualifying items sold online, or by telephone and mail. A layaway plan also qualifies for the tax advantage, the state agency reports.

The Texas Legislature sets the weekend dates for the annual sales tax holiday. For additional information, including details on qualifying tax-free purchases, visit the Texas Comptroller’s site.
