Tax Free weekend has arrived in Texas
If you're still looking for back-to-school gear, this is the weekend to buy! Tax free weekend has arrived in Texas.
It starts Friday, August 11, and goes through Sunday, August 13. The weekend exempts the sales tax on most clothing, shoes, school supplies and backpacks that are less than $100. The Texas comptroller's office said it saves shoppers about $8 for every $100.
The office says they estimate shoppers will save around $87 million over the weekend. Tax free weekend started back in 1999.
