Texas to Hold Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday, Aug. 10- 12, 2018

Posted by Goldin Peiser & Peiser on Jul 16, 2018 3:26:43 AM

Texas will again offer a sales tax holiday before the school year gets underway. In fact, all but one of the states that provided sales tax holidays in 2017 are offering their taxpayers another break this year.

Here is what you should know about the 2018 Texas sales tax holiday: 

  • The sales tax holiday will take place from Friday, Aug. 10, to Sunday, Aug. 12, 2018

Note, all sales of qualifying items made during the holiday period qualify for the exemption, including items sold online or by telephone or mail. Individuals can use layaway plans to take advantage of the sales tax holiday.

Earlier this year, Texas held three other sales tax holidays for emergency preparation supplies, Texas EnergyStar, and water-efficient products.

For additional information on the back-to-school sales tax holiday, please see the full list of FAQs available on the state comptroller’s site.
