Sales Tax Holiday Weekend In Texas Begins Friday

Updated: Thursday, August 7 2014, 03:06 PM CDT
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- It's nearly sales tax break time in Texas.
 
The state's annual sales tax holiday begins Friday and runs through Sunday as children prepare to return to school.
 
Comptroller Susan Combs says shoppers can save money on certain items priced under $100.
 
The Texas law exempts most clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks priced under $100 from sales tax. That adds up to about $8 on every $100 spent on certain purchases this weekend. The tax break does not extend to some items, such as jewelry, purses and luggage.
 
Combs estimates shoppers will save nearly $83 million in state and local sales taxes this weekend. Qualifying purchases can be done in stores, online or from catalog sellers that do business in Texas, which began sales tax break weekend in 1999.
