Texas Tax Free Weekend starts today and ends on Sunday Aug. 23rd. These 3 days are the state's annual tax holiday.
Most clothing and footwear priced under $100 is exempt from sale & use taxes during the holiday. This is great for parents that have kids going to school. A lot of people will be doing their back to school shopping during these 3 days.
A lot of people were complaining about school supplies not qualifying for the tax exemption. Because of this, in 2009, Texas shoppers will also get a sales tax break on most school supplies priced at less than $100.
Not all pieces of clothing and school supplies are eligible for the tax exemption. For a list of items that are taxed and tax-free click here.
