TEXAS – Sales Tax Holiday
Aug. 7 – 9, 2015
This year’s Sales Tax Holiday is Aug. 7 – 9. 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.
Subject to the certain criteria explained on the Comptrollers webpage , 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.
