Tax free weekend Aug. 10 – 12

A chance to save some money on a variety of school supplies arrives this weekend.
Springtown residents who need to do back-to-school shopping can take advantage of the annual Texas sales tax holiday.
Between Aug. 10-12, most clothing, footwear, school supplies, and backpacks – sold for less than $100 – can be purchased tax free from a Texas store, from an online site, or from a catalog seller doing business in Texas.
In most cases, shoppers do not need to give the seller an exemption certificate to buy qualifying items tax free.
The sales tax exemption applies only to qualifying items bought during the sales tax holiday.
Items purchased before or after the sales tax holiday do not qualify for exemption, and there is no tax refund available.
