Annual sales tax holiday starts today

Posted by: tdt -


The annual Texas Sales Tax Holiday will start today and continue through the weekend until 11:59 pm on Sunday Aug. 13.

This yearly event began in 1999 and originally applied only to clothing, shoes and backpacks that were under
$100 each. In 2009, most regular school supplies were added to the list of items that could be bought without paying sales tax. This allows customers to save about eight percent on these items during tax-free weekend.
