Who’s ready for back to school?? I cannot believe that Olivia will be starting Kindergarten in about 2 weeks!! She has been going to a part-time preschool for the past two years but I feel like this is officially the start of her next life phase and I. Cannot. Handle. It.
I’m so excited for her but am filled with so much emotion for my little girl — but that’s a whole other blog post. Let’s talk about sales!! That’s right, this weekend is Tax Free Weekend and there will be many items that will be tax free so it’s a great time to stock up on back to school essentials.
Tax Free Weekend
Let’s start by focusing on what items will qualify for the tax free weekend — sorry but that recliner you’ve been eyeing — not tax free. If your state participates in a tax free weekend, be sure to check the states website for dates and what items qualify. I will be focusing on Texas because it’s where I live.
Here in Texas, tax free weekend starts August 9th and runs through August 11th. According to the Texas state comptroller, most clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks (sold for less than $100) from a Texas store or from an online or catalog seller doing business in Texas will qualify.
This only applies to items purchased during the tax free weekend and you will not receive a tax refund for qualifying items that were purchased before or after the tax free weekend.
It is important that you also check your state comptrollers website for a complete list of qualifying items. For instance, the website mentions most clothing items, so dresses, shirts, skirts, socks are all except, but cleats, jewelry and fishing boots are not except. Again, you can view a complete list here.
