Texas Tax-Free Weekend Starts at Midnight
- Aug 7, 2014 | Gail Cole
Shoppers in need of clothing, footwear and school supplies could save as much as $8 on every $100 spent this weekend, according to the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts. That’s thanks to the sales tax holiday that runs August 8-10, 2014. The tax-free period officially begins on Friday at 12:01 a.m.
Retailers and shoppers are advised to read the “fine print” published by the Comptroller. It provides reporting requirements for sellers, exemption certificate requirements for certain buyers, advertising constraints, and a list of exempt and non-exempt items.
