Starting today, this weekend, August 11 – August 13, is Texas’s annual Sales Tax Holiday! Every year, Texans save millions of dollars on common school supplies and school clothes. Footwear and backpacks are also exempt from taxation this weekend, but not specialty items such as cleats or football pads. Items over $100, even if they’re on the tax exempt list, still have sales tax, however.
