Texas Comptroller Susan Combs reminds shoppers the annual sales tax holiday is scheduled for this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 8 -10.
The law exempts most clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks priced under $100 from sales tax, which could save shoppers about $8 on every $100 they spend during the weekend.
Lists of apparel and school supplies that may be purchased tax free can be found on the Comptrollerâ€™s website at www.TexasTaxHoliday.org.
This year, shoppers will save an estimated $82.7 million in state and local sales taxes during the Sales Tax Holiday. The tax holiday weekend has been an annual event since 1999.
