“Family budgets are stretched farther than ever, especially with the high price of gasoline, groceries and other necessities,” Senator Zaffirini said. “I am pleased that even more items qualify for tax-free status this year so that families may enjoy greater savings.”
Most children’s and adult’s clothing and shoes priced less than $100 can be purchased tax-free during the holiday. A complete list of items that will be tax exempt during the sales tax holiday is available at www.window.state.tx.us/taxinfo/taxpubs/tx98_490/tx98_490.html.
Since 1999 the clothing sales tax holiday has saved shoppers more than $388 million in state and local sales taxes.
