This year's sales tax holiday for clothing and footwear begins at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, August 1, and ends at midnight on Sunday, August 3. The tax break is expected to save Texas consumers millions in state and local sales taxes. This is one time hard-working Texans can keep their money in their pockets for their families' priorities.
I have been a strong advocate for the sales tax holiday since its inception and am pleased to do my part to ensure its success. I have enclosed a list of items for a quick reference and a flyer you can post in a prominent place in your store in advance of the tax holiday.
The list cannot include every possible item that qualifies for the exemption. If you have questions about items not shown here, please call my office at 1-800-252-5555.
Here are some highlights about the sales tax holiday:
