Attention Texas shoppers!
Most of the Lone Star State schools are about to start and this weekend's sales tax holiday offers you the chance to buy some sales-tax-free school supplies.
Also exempt from state and local sales taxes starting today, Friday, Aug.20, and running through Sunday, Aug. 22, are most articles of clothing and footwear priced under $100 each.
The Texas comptroller of public accounts has posted a comprehensive list of just what is tax-free and what isn't during the tax holiday period.
This weekend's Texas tax holiday wraps up the back-to-school no-tax events. But other state tax holidays offering tax breaks on specific items are coming up very soon. Stay tuned for details!
