Texas Sales Tax Holiday Coming August 9-11

This post is for those of us in Texas!  You might think that the Texas sales tax holiday only applies to shopping at the mall for back-to-school clothes, shoes, and school supplies, but no!! It’s not THIS weekend but just to let you know it’s coming NEXT weekend, Friday August 9 through Sunday August 11.  The tax itself isn’t a big savings but it can add up!  Might as well take advantage of it!

The state of Texas is having a sales tax holiday for school supplies up to $100 per item from August 9-11. Because school supply items are included in this sales tax holiday, the list of items below will be state tax-free during the holiday period. Please note that you must place your order with Stampin’Up!® during the tax holiday period in order to receive these items tax-free. Also, keep in mind that this is a state sales tax holiday and may not apply to additional city, jurisdiction, or county taxes.

You can benefit by purchasing Stampin’ Up! supplies as well! If you have children or grandchildren or neighborhood children or just like to think of yourself as a student, you know that school projects can pop up at any moment. My family has often asked to use my craft supplies to make a project for school or Scouts or parties or anything.  We parents know that these needs frequently pop up at 10:00 pm the night before the project is due, so it is always a good idea to have these things on hand.  I always had a stash of notebooks, folders, graph paper, glue, notebook paper, and more on a designated shelf in my closet rather than having to dash to the store at the last minute.

Come back to my Online Store next weekend (Friday – Sunday) to add these items to your order and save the tax, IF you live in Texas.  Other states maybe also be having sales tax holidays for the start of school.  I just saw a story on the Today Show as I was writing this. Some states are having their tax holidays this weekend.
