Representative Dominguez Encourages Shoppers to Partake in Tax Free Weekend  print page

by: Rep. Dominguez, Alex

AUSTIN-- Tax Free Weekend has returned for Texas shoppers. Shoppers will be able to save money on school supplies and more during the state's annual sales tax holiday which will begin Friday, Aug. 9 and continue until midnight Sunday, Aug. 11.

Sales tax will not be applied to items such as clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks that are priced below $100. Shoppers can purchase these items in a Texas store or from an online or catalog seller doing business in Texas.

"I encourage all Texans to take advantage of Tax Free Weekend, and, if possible, support local businesses," said State Representative Alex Dominguez (Brownsville).

Shoppers should be reminded that the sales tax exemption only applies during the dates above. Purchases made before or after tax free weekend will not qualify for exemption.
