HOUSTON – The Texas tax-free holiday is scheduled for Friday Aug. 9 to Sunday Aug. 11.

The tax-free weekend is an opportunity for families to purchase necessary school supplies and clothing without paying sales taxes on the qualifying items.  Shoppers save about $8 for every $100 spent.  

All sales of qualifying items made during the holiday period qualify for the exemption, including items sold online, or by telephone or mail. Lay-away plans can also be used.
