AUSTIN, Texas — Texas Comptroller Susan Combs reminds Texas families that the state’s annual Sales Tax Holiday takes place this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 19-21.

“Shoppers can stock up on many school supplies, school backpacks and most children’s and adults’ clothing and shoes priced at less than $100 without paying state or local sales tax,” Combs said.

This year marks the 13th annual Sales Tax Holiday. Combs predicts shoppers will save $62.1 million in state and local sales taxes this weekend.

Lists of apparel and school supplies that may be purchased tax free can be found on the comptroller’s website at
