All Texans can take advantage of the Texas Sales Tax Holiday this Aug. 9-11, as long as they are purchasing a qualifying item.

You won’t see any of the parties, cakes or balloons usually associated with anniversaries as the Texas Sales Tax Holiday celebrates its 20th anniversary Aug. 9-11 — just the annual ringing of cash registers and clacking of fingers on keyboards.

Texans will be taking advantage of the state’s three-day suspension of state and local sales taxes on qualifying clothing, footwear and school supplies priced below $100 in stores and online.

Learn how this holiday has helped Texans save more than $1.3 billion in state and local taxes in the past two decades in the latest Line Items story from Fiscal Notes.
