Texas Sales Tax Holiday Runs Through Sunday

Austin, TX – The Texas sales tax holiday begins today and runs through Sunday.

State Comptroller Susan Combs says most clothing and shoes priced less than $100, with some exceptions, can be purchased tax free.

Combs estimates shoppers will save about 54 million dollars in the state's 10th annual tax-free weekend as families prepare for school to resume.
