Back-to-School Tax Holiday - Shop Local!

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 11-13. Texas shoppers will save an estimated $92 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:

Please be sure to invest in our local communities by supporting area businesses when making your back-to-school purchases.
