Tax-Free Weekend is upon us here in Texas and that means you should expect big crowds at the malls and stores. You have until midnight on Sunday, August 17 to take advantage of the sales tax holiday on school supplies, shoes, clothes, backpacks, and much more priced under $100. You can view the full list of sales tax exempt products here.

So how much will you save? According to a press release from the Governor’s Office:

Texas shoppers can save about $8 for every $100 they spend, and are expected to save a total $64.8 million in state and local sales tax during this year’s holiday weekend. Texas shoppers have saved $626.9 million since the first tax-free holiday in 1999.

So will you be hitting the stores and mall this weekend to take advantage? Or will you stay away? Let us know in today’s LFN Poll of the Day.
