Texas Sales Tax Holiday Scheduled August 9-11, 2019

The Texas Sales Tax Holiday is scheduled for August 9-11, 2019. During this annual sales tax holiday event, most clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks (sold for less than $100) can be purchased sales-tax-free from a Texas store or from an online or catalog seller doing business in Texas.

This year’s sales tax holiday begins Friday, Aug. 9, and goes through midnight Sunday, Aug. 11.

The sales tax exemption applies only to qualifying items purchased during the sales tax holiday. Items purchased before or after the sales tax holiday do not qualify for an exemption, and there is no tax refund available.

Texas’ sales tax holiday weekend has been an annual event since 1999.

This fundraiser will benefit the dogs she rescues in our area who need to be neutered or spayed to get them out of shelters and ready for fostering and adoption.

Founder of the Facebook community, Traci’s Texas Tails, Traci rescues pups off the streets as well as rescuing dogs out of all of the local shelters. Traci is a hometown hero who works tirelessly to help these dogs who others so carelessly toss aside.
