Sales Tax Holiday Reminder
Airdate: through Aug. 17, 2008
Texas back-to-school shoppers remember that this weekend marks the 10th annual sales tax holiday weekend in Texas. This means shoppers will pay no state or local sales tax on most kids’ and adults’ clothing and shoes priced less than $100 and school backpacks less than $100. The sales tax holiday runs from this Friday, Aug. 15, through Sunday, the 17. For a complete list of tax exempt items, go to the Comptroller’s Web site at www.window.state.tx.us.
