State’s sales tax holiday weekend Aug. 17-19

AUSTIN—Texas Comptroller Susan Combs reminds shoppers they can save money on everything from pens, jeans and shoes to backpacks and other items priced under $100 during the state’s annual sales tax holiday. This year, the sales tax holiday is scheduled for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 17-19.

“Shoppers across Texas can take advantage of the three-day sales tax holiday and save extra money for their budgets,” Texas Comptroller Susan Combs said. “Families gearing up for the new school year would not pay any sales tax for many backto school items from clothing and footwear to school supplies during that weekend.”

Lists of apparel and school supplies that may be purchased tax free can be found on the Comptroller’s website at: www.TexasTaxHoliday.org.
