The 2023 Tax-Free Weekend in Texas runs from Friday, August 11 through midnight on Sunday, August 1st. There is a three-day window where you can buy certain things without paying sales tax; if you haven’t finished back-to-school shopping yet, now is the time to do it.

What you should know before getting out and participating in the 2023 tax-free holiday

During the annual back-to-school sales tax holiday in Texas, consumers can buy most school supplies, clothing, and footwear tax-free. However, some restrictions apply, so read the fine print before you go shopping. Texas has a state sales tax rate of 6.25 percent. In order to avoid sales tax, an item’s price must be $100 or less. If an item costs $150, the full price, not just the extra $10, will be subject to sales tax.
