Shop Tax Free This Weekend
Wednesday, August 6, 2014 • Posted August 8, 2014

This year, Texas shoppers will again get a break from state and local sales taxes on August 8 through 10, the state’s annual tax holiday. As in previous years, the law exempts most clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks priced under $100 from sales and use taxes, which could save shoppers about $8 on every $100 they spend.

The dates for the sales tax holiday are set by the Legislature.

Subject to the criteria explained below, all sales of qualifying items made during the holiday period qualify for the exemption, including items sold online, or by telephone or mail. Lay-away plans can be used again this year to take advantage of the sales tax holiday.
