REMINDER: Sales Tax Holiday this weekend Aug. 5-7


AUSTIN – Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar reminds shoppers the annual sales tax  holiday is this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 5 – 7.

The law exempts most clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks priced for less than $100 from sales tax, saving shoppers about $8 on every $100 they spend during the weekend.

Lists of apparel and school supplies that may be purchased tax-free can be found on the

Comptroller’s website at

This year, shoppers will save an estimated $92 million in state and local sales taxes during

the sales tax holiday, which has been an annual event since 1999.
