.........Are you getting ready to do
some back-to-school shopping? If so, STOP! Wait until August 2-4 for big
savings during the sales tax holiday. That's when the state of Texas will
suspend the sales tax on items such as dresses, jeans, jackets, shoes
and sweaters. The state will not charge you taxes on items that are less
than $100. If you spend $99 on one item, you'll save about eight dollars!
