Flickr/401(k)2013

It won’t be long before kids start heading back to school and if you’re looking to save a few bucks and pay no sales tax, then the Texas Comptroller Susan Combs reminds shoppers they can save money on certain 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. 9 -11.

The law 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.

“Texas families can take advantage of the sales tax holiday when doing their back-to-school shopping,” Combs said. “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.”

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

This year, shoppers will save an estimated $74.1 million in state and local sales taxes during the Sales Tax Holiday.

The dates for the tax holiday weekend are established by the Legislature in the state tax code. The sales tax holiday has been an annual event since 1999.
