AUSTIN — Shoppers can save money on certain items priced under $100 during the state’s annual sales tax holiday, Texas Comptroller Susan Combs said in a news release. This year, the sales tax holiday is scheduled for Friday through Aug. 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,” the news release stated.

Lists of apparel and school supplies that may be purchased tax free can be found at www.TexasTaxHoliday.org.
