Texas Sales Tax Free Shopping Days Announced

Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, Glenn Hegar, has announced August 7th – 9th will be the 2015 Sales Tax Holiday; the dates for the sales tax holiday are set by the Legislature   As in previous years, the law exempts most clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks priced under $100 from sales and use taxes, which could save shoppers about $8 on every $100 they spend.

All sales of qualifying items* made during the holiday period qualify for the exemption, including items sold online, or by telephone or mail. Lay-away plans can be used again this year to take advantage of the sales tax holiday.

To view the list of eligible non-taxable items during these dates, visit the State of Texas Comptroller’s website*.
