Insider's Report Vol. 10 No. 24
Texans once again have the opportunity to save money when shopping for school supplies during the annual Back-to-School sales tax holiday, which will take place Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, August 7-9. Texas shoppers will save an estimated $87 million in state and local sales taxes during the tax-free weekend.
The law exempts school supplies, school backpacks, and most children's and adults' clothing and shoes priced at less than $100. In addition to the tax savings, many businesses offer further reductions that can add up to a significant discount on back-to-school purchases. To see a full list of eligible items, please visit the Comptroller's website at: www.texastaxholiday.org.
And be sure to invest in our local communities by supporting area businesses when making your back-to-school purchases.
