AUSTIN (AP) - The 10th annual Texas sales tax holiday will be
Aug. 15-17 as families prepare to send children back to school.
Texas Comptroller Susan Combs on Wednesday announced most
clothing and shoes priced less than $100, with some exceptions, can
be purchased tax free that weekend.
Combs estimates shoppers will save about $54 million.
Some tax free items will include coats, diapers, hooded shirts
and sweat shirts, jeans, suits and underclothes.
Taxes must still be paid on wallets, watches, handbags, jewelry
and roller blades and skates.
Combs says the tax loss is not expected to have a significant
impact on Texas sales tax collections. She says Texas sales tax
revenue "continues to grow at a healthy pace."
