It's that time of year. Backpacks without dirt. Lunch boxes without crumbs. Shoes without scuffs.
If you are a Texan, you know that the annual Tax-Free Holiday is one you either look forward to or try to avoid shopping those three days.
For those of you who don't know what I am talking about, August 9-11, 2013 is the time that residents can save sales tax on back-to-school items up to $100. That doesn't mean you can't make five separate purchases under $100 but you only get tax off up to $100. Many local stores also have great sales this weekend so keep your eyes peeled!
What are you able to buy TAX FREE on August 9-11? Here is the list:
- Baby clothes
- Backpacks for use by elementary and seconary students
- Coats and wraps
- Index cards
- Lunch boxes
- Pencil sharpeners
- Writing tablets
Enjoy saving a little money while getting your kids excited about heading back to school!
