School is right around the corner and we’ll all soon be shopping for new school uniforms, getting everything for the school supply list, new backpacks, shoes and all the other necessities to start off the school year and the time to save a little money is coming up August 8th thru 10th during the State of Texas Tax Free Weekend!

As long as qualifying items are priced under $100, you’ll save the tax! Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts says,

Families gearing up for the new school year will not pay any sales tax for many back-to-school items ranging from pens to blue jeans. When the back-to-school list is long and the money is short, it can be difficult for Texas families. We hope this tax break will help ease that burden.”

A complete list of tax free items can be found on the Sales Tax Holiday website, but some of the tax free items are things like:

  • Binders
  • Book bags
  • Calculators
  • Blackboard chalk
  • Composition books
  • Crayons
  • Erasers
  • Folders; expandable, pocket, plastic, and manila
  • Glue, paste and paste sticks
  • Highlighters
  • Lunch boxes
  • Markers (including dry erase markers)
  • Notebooks
  • Paper; loose leaf ruled notebook paper, copy paper, graph paper, tracing paper, manila paper, colored paper, poster board, and construction paper
  • Pencils

and many other items including clothing!
