Texas sales tax holiday begins Friday, runs through Sunday

🕐 1 min read

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas shoppers will get a tax break later this week as children prepare to return to school.

The Texas comptroller’s office says the state’s annual tax-free weekend, for a number of school-related items, begins Friday and runs through Sunday.

Tax break weekend, which began in 1999. exempts most clothing, footwear and school supplies priced less than $100 from sales and use taxes for the weekend. The sales tax holiday applies to purchases from a Texas store or from an online or catalog seller doing business in the state. Layaways are eligible.

Officials say the tax break could save buyers about $8 on every $100 spent.

Some purchases are not eligible for the tax break, including jewelry, handbags, purses, briefcases, luggage, wallets, watches and similar items.
