Enjoy Sales Tax free shopping for many items today through Sunday, August 7th - 9th.

The Comptroller encourages all taxpayers to continue practicing social distancing and support Texas businesses while saving money on tax-free purchases of most clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks (sold for less than $100) during the annual Tax-Free weekend.
Qualifying items can be purchased tax free from a Texas store or from an online or catalog seller doing business in Texas. In most cases, you do not need to give the seller an exemption certificate to buy qualifying items tax free. The sales tax exemption applies only to qualifying items you buy during the sales tax holiday period.
To promote social distancing, the Texas Comptroller’s office wants all taxpayers to know that during the Tax-Free Weekend, you can buy qualifying items online or by telephone, mail, custom order or any other means (including in-store purchases) tax free, when either the item is both delivered, and paid for, by the customer during the exemption, or
the customer orders and pays for the item, and the seller accepts the order during the exemption period for immediate shipment, even if delivery is made after the exemption period ends.
 For In-Store Purchases, the Comptroller’s office urges all taxpayers buying certain qualifying items at their local retailers to practice appropriate social distancing as described in the Center for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines during the sales tax holiday.The list of qualifying Items includes:
List of Clothing, Footwear and Other Items
List of School Supplies
Clothing and Footwear
Face Masks
School Supplies
Special Purchases
School Supplies Purchased Using a Business Account – Exemption Certificate Required
As far as Layaways:
Special Orders and Rain Checks
Additional Charges Affect the Sales Price
Delivery, Shipping, Handling and Transportation Charges
Sales Tax Holiday Refund Requests
If you pay sales tax on qualifying items during the sales tax holiday, you can ask the seller for a refund of the tax paid. The seller can either grant the refund or provide their customer with Form 00-985, Assignment to Right to Refund (PDF), which allows the purchaser to file the refund claim directly with the Comptroller’s office.

Happy Tax Free Shopping Weekend. Go save a lot of money!
