Texans can save some money when buying school supplies in August.

The state’s annual sales tax holiday will run from Friday, August 9th through Sunday, August 11th.

The sales tax holiday 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.

“The tax holiday applies to a variety of items ranging from pens to jeans to help shoppers around Texas save some of their hard earned money,” said Texas Comptroller Susan Combs.

The state estimates that consumers will save an estimated $74.1 million in state and local sales taxes during the sales tax holiday period.

Lists of apparel and school supplies that will be tax-free during the tax holiday are available at www.TexasTaxHoliday.org.

The dates for the sales tax holiday weekend are established by the Texas Legislature in the state tax code. The sales tax holiday was first established in 1999.
