Texas Tax Free Weekend 2010: Back to school offers

Many states in the U.S. have already had their Tax-free weekend, but there are still those who have yet to receive this great discount from the government. The next is the Texas Tax Free Weekend 2010 and runs from August 20 — 22, so is an ideal time to bag a back to school bargain.

If we have a look at previous years, we can expect to see clothing items of less than $100 exempt from tax, this works out to an $8 saving for every $100 that you spend. Window on State Government points out that most backpacks are below $100, and will be one of the most purchased items — well apart from footwear and clothing items.

We have to remind students that brief cases do not fall under the exemption list, as this is classed as luggage, which to me seems very strange. The list of products that qualify for exemption has been expanding each year, with 2010 being the best to-date.

Some of the most popular back to school items to be purchased at a cheaper rate over the weekend will include Calculators, Binders, Composition books, Lunch boxes, Pens, Writing tablets and much more. What will you be purchasing during Texas Tax Free Weekend 2010?
