      Texas sales tax holiday approaching

      The Outlet Mall in Mercedes is a popular sales tax holiday destination

      The Texas sales tax holiday weekend has been set for Aug. 9-11 as families prepare to send children back to school.

      State Comptroller Susan Combs says shoppers can save money on certain items costing less than $100.

      The law exempts most clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks priced under $100 from sales tax.

      That could save about $8 on every $100 spent, with some exceptions.

      Combs estimates shoppers will save more than $74 million in state and local sales taxes during the second weekend of August.

      The Texas sales tax holiday weekend has been an annual event since 1999.
