Finally! We Lone Star State residents now get to do some tax-free shopping.
Friday, Aug. 21, kicks off a weekend of no sales taxes on most clothing and footwear priced under $100. The tax holiday runs through Sunday, Aug. 23.
New on the tax-free list this year is a collection of school supplies. These classroom items, which also must be priced at less than $100 each, are detailed at the Texas Comptroller's special tax holiday Web page.
In addition, the state has put together a list of apparel and accessories that are tax exempt, or not, during the holiday.
