Texas: Sales Tax Holiday Tax Free Weekend

TX: The Comptroller encourages all taxpayers to support Texas businesses while saving money on most clothing, shoes, school supplies, and backpacks (sold for less than $100) tax-free during the annual tax holiday weekend. Eligible items may be purchased tax-free in a Texas store or from an online or catalog seller doing business in Texas. In most cases, you do not need to issue an exemption certificate to the seller to purchase eligible items duty-free.

This year’s sales tax holiday begins Friday, Aug. 5, and goes through midnight Sunday, Aug. 7.

The sales tax exemption only applies to qualifying items you purchase during the sales tax exemption period. Therefore, items purchased before or after-sales tax exemption do not qualify for the exemption, and no tax refund is available.
