Texas Sales Tax

Retail stores throughout Arlington are preparing for the state's annual Sales Tax Holiday, which will be held Friday, August 11 through Sunday, August 13.

As in previous years, the law exempts most clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks priced less than $100 from sales and use tax, which could save shoppers about $8 on every $100 they spend during the weekend.

Lists of apparel and school supplies that may be purchased tax-free can be found on the Comptroller's website at TexasTaxHoliday.org.

This year, shoppers will save an estimated $87 million in state and local sales taxes during the sales tax holiday, which has been an annual event since 1999.
