 Texas Sales Tax-Free Week-end~ August 8-10 2014

 

 

Texas Shoppers make sure you market your calendars for a break from state and local sales taxes on August 8-10 2014! It’s the annual state tax holiday. Remember Layaway plans can be used again this year to take advantage of the sales tax holiday!

Continuing the tradition, the law exempts most clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks priced under $100 from Sales and use taxes..... saving shoppers $8 on every $100 they spend!

Hi Dorie -- while we don't have these types of Tax-Free Holidays in California, I know they are very popular in places where they exist.  A great way to get out the word before school starts.

Hi Dorie, I would bet that many in the state choose this time to buy their cars. They could use the savings to buy one heck of a lot of technology. New iPhone, New iPad and New iMac computer and still have a lot left over.

 Hi Dorie, I guess I didn't read this well enough.My Bad!  I was being rushed and missed the real essence of the post, sorry, not like me to do that. I discovered this when I returned and turned my iPad on and as I was re-reading, it hit me like a ton of bricks. Then I felt really stupid, LOL.

Good morning Dorie. An opportunity for parents to handle their school shopping to take advantage of the taxes free time period and on top of the existing sales.

 Good morning Dorie. Our tax-free weekend is next week. Laptops under a certain price amount are also included in tax-free weekend. Tennessee is pretty liberal.

This was very popular in the Charlotte area for years and last year was the last year they did it. It continues just over the boarder in South Carolina, so I think a lot of us from North Carolina will be crossing the border to shop.
