Texas Sales Tax Holiday

Practitioners are reminded that the annual Texas Sales Tax Holiday is approaching. On August 15– 17, Texas taxpayers may purchase most clothing and footwear priced under $100 tax-free. Backpacks – when used by elementary and secondary students – have been added to the list of eligible items. Lay-away plans may be used again this year to take advantage of the sales tax holiday.

Sellers are cautioned that it is unlawful to advertise that they will pay their customer’s sales tax when taxable items are purchased. Additionally, sellers are prohibited from advertising that they will not collect sales tax on taxable items.
