Texas Holds Annual Sales Tax Holiday 2018

Texas is set to hold its annual sales tax holiday from August 10-12, 2018. 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.

The 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.

It is important to note that additional charges such as delivery, shipping, handling and transportation that are charges by the seller are part of the item’s sale price.
