Texas sales tax holiday weekend of Aug. 9-11
AUSTIN, TX -- The Texas sales tax holiday weekend has been set for Aug. 9-11 as families prepare to send children back to school.
State Comptroller Susan Combs says shoppers can save money on certain items costing less than $100.
The law exempts most clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks priced under $100 from sales tax. That could save about $8 on every $100 spent, with some exceptions.
Combs estimates shoppers will save more than $74 million in state and local sales taxes during the second weekend of August.
The Texas sales tax holiday weekend has been an annual event since 1999.
