Texas Holds Annual Sales Tax Holiday

Texas is holding its annual sales tax holiday from August 9-11, 2019. During this time, consumers can purchase select clothing and footwear, school supplies and backpacks, with a purchase price of $100 or less per item, free of state and local sales tax.

This exemption includes backpacks with wheels and messenger bags. You can buy up to 10 backpacks tax-free at one time without giving an exemption certificate to the seller.

Additional charges by the seller such as delivery, shipping, handling and transportation are part of the item’s sale price.
