Sales Tax Holidays Frequently Asked Questions

Does Texas Have Any Sales Tax Holidays?

Yes. Taxpayers can buy certain items tax free during Texas’ four annual sales and use tax holidays. Eligible purchases include back-to-school and emergency supplies, as well as energy- and water-saving products. All tax holidays fall on a weekend.

Although each holiday has specific guidelines, buyers don’t need a special exemption certificate to buy items tax free. Select a holiday for details on qualifying purchases.
