This is the time of year parents can’t stand! Back to school time!! But fortunately you can save to ton of money starting Friday as the Tax-Free weekend starts here in Texas! The three-day break lets families buy backpacks, sneakers and blue jeans with no sales tax, which seems like a straightforward way to save.
This weekend allows families to avoid paying sales tax on the majority of clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks that cost less than $100. On average, shoppers will save about $8 on every $100 they spend during the three-day event.
Lists of apparel and school supplies that may be purchased tax-free can be found on the Comptroller’s website at Texas Tax Holiday
