With students going back to school very soon across Texas, the statewide school supplies sales tax holiday will help parents to save a little money. This year it will be Friday, August 9th, Saturday, August 10th, and Sunday, August 11th.

The tax free weekend allows parents the ability to buy clothing and school supplies which are priced below $100.00 without paying state or local taxes.

Texas law exempts most clothing, footwear, school supplies, and backpacks, and also allows layaway purchases of these items which qualify for the sales tax exemption.
