The tax free holiday is this weekend, August 5th, 6th and 7th.

That's 3 days of shopping for clothing, footwear and school supplies which all qualifies if each item is under $100.

Backpacks are also exempt but they must be priced at less than $100. And wheels and messenger bags are included but luggage, briefcases and gym bags will be taxed.

Just remember that textbooks, computers and software are all taxed.

Lastly, if you shop online keep in mind that online sales are tax exempt in Texas.

Here's a list of everything that qualifies this weekend.
