H-town don’t miss out on the tax free weekend. It starts today, August 7th and ends Sunday, August 9th. The law exempts most clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks priced under $100 from sales and use taxes. So shoppers could save about $8 dollars 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 be used again this year to take advantage of the sales tax holiday.
