Longview, TX — The state’s 13th annual sales tax holiday takes place today through midnight Sunday.
“Shoppers can stock up on many school supplies, school backpacks and most children’s and adults’ clothing and shoes priced at less than $100 without paying state or local sales tax,” Texas State Comptroller Susan Combs said.
She predicts shoppers will save $62.1 million in state and local sales taxes this weekend.
Lists of apparel and school supplies that may be purchased tax free can be found on the comptroller’s website at www.texastaxholiday.org.
