Annual Tax Holiday Gives Texas Shoppers a Break

Texas has announced the dates of its annual sales tax holiday: August 3-6, 2007. During this period, the state will exempt shoppers from paying state and local sales taxes on most clothing and footwear priced under $100. Items such as accessories, jewelry, and most sports equipment will not qualify for the exemption. Furthermore, the tax holiday will offer lay-away plans again this year so shoppers can take advantage of the exemption. (Publication 98-490, Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts)
