This year, the sales tax holiday is scheduled for Aug. 17-19.
“Shoppers across Texas can take advantage of the three-day sales tax holiday and save extra money for their budgets,” Ms. Combs said in a prepared statement. “Families gearing up for the new school year would not pay any sales tax for many back-to-school items from clothing and footwear to school supplies during that weekend.”
This year, shoppers will save an estimated $64.8 million in state and local sales taxes during the Sales Tax Holiday, she said. The tax holiday weekend has been an annual event since 1999. Lists of apparel and school supplies that may be purchased tax free can be found on the Comptroller's website at: www.TexasTaxHoliday.org.
