Thread Details

This year’s Sales Tax Holiday is Aug. 5 - 7. As in previous years, the law exempts most clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks priced less than $100 from sales and use taxes, which could save shoppers about $8 on every $100 they spend.

You might be able do online shopping and not pay tax as well. My wife did that for our tax-free days in Georgia.

I agree, malls/stores are a nightmare during these tax free days.

Outside of the minimal amount you save, I never got the appeal of going crazy over tax free weekend. If you're in a position (God forbid) where a buck or two would make or break your budget then I don't see them spending money even with the tax free status.

FYI, I don't mean to come across as a jerk saying that so if I did I'm sorry and it wasn't my intention.

Considering the average family spends $300-$400 for back to school clothes and supplies the extra $30 savings comes in handy

I'm staying near a major outlet mall which is going to be open 24x7 for the duration of the Texas tax-free period. They're closing the nearby exits to help protect IH35 from gridlock. Planning to give that area as wide a berth as possible. And I'm certainly not venturing into the heart of the beast.

Saw an estimate that Texas is giving up an estimated $92 million in revenue over the tax free period. And Texas is a state with no state income tax. Not seeing a long line for other states to follow ;-)
