(AP) - The annual Texas sales tax holiday will be Aug. 19-21.

State Comptroller Susan Combs on Thursday announced the annual tax-free weekend, as shoppers get a break from sales tax on certain items costing less than $100.

Combs says shoppers will pay no state or local sales tax on many school supplies and most clothing. The list of exceptions includes certain leather goods, handbags, jewelry and helmets.

Combs predicts shoppers will save $62.1 million in state and local sales taxes during the Friday, Saturday and Sunday tax break, an annual event in Texas since 1999.
