LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

This year's Sales Tax Holiday will take place Aug. 5 through 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.

All sales of qualifying items made during the holiday period qualify for the exemption, including items sold online, or by telephone or mail. Shoppers can use layaway plans to take advantage of the sales tax holiday.

The Legislature sets the dates for annual tax break, which has taken place since 1999.
