August 8th through 10th is Texas’ Annual Sales Tax Holiday weekend when consumers can save big on exempted items purchased throughout the State. Dates for this event are set by the State Legislature through Texas Administrative Code 34 Tex. Admin. Code § 3.365 and exempts most clothing, footwear, school supplies, and backpacks priced under $100 from sales and use taxes when purchased during this one weekend, alone.
Did You Know: Even when sales tax is not collected from purchases, shopping locally benefits businesses in Town, encourages economic growth over time, lessens the number of commercial vacancies, and encourages future local shopping!
All qualified sale items during the holiday period are exempted, including online purchases, or those made by telephone or mail through participating providers*. It is important, however, to note that not all items are eligible for exemption.
Shop Trophy Club
While you are taking advantage of this great chance to save some dollars on your back-to-school purchases, don’t forget to support local businesses by trying to keep your shopping in the community! Tom Thumb (101 Trophy Lake Drive, Suite 104) and Walgreens (541 Trophy Lake Drive) offer a wide variety of school supplies, backpacks, and other essentials, while The Sassy Flamingo (501 Trophy Lake Drive, Suite 314) sells some of the most unique and fun women’s and children’s clothing in North Texas.
Remember that shopping locally is a state of mind and here in Trophy Club, we want to show our businesses that we support them by keeping as many consumer dollars in-Town as is possible. Every little bit makes a big difference!
Did You Know: Texas was one of the very first states to offer a tax-free weekend back in 1999.
