Tax-free weekend in GA & TX #backtoschool

Several states had a tax-free weekend last week, with savings on back-to-school necessities. This weekend, August 9-10, Georgia and Texas will follow suit. It is a perfect time to grab the new things your kids need while saving some money in the process!

The Texas weekend was originally scheduled one week later, but it has been moved to this coming weekend. Clothing, backpacks, and school supplies are on the list of tax-exempt items. The Texas exemption runs an extra day, through Sunday, August 11.

In Georgia, parents can save on clothing, including outerwear, dresses, sleepwear, and casual attire. Some athletic gear as well. Clothing and athletic items must be under $100 each to qualify. In addition, computers, printers, and related equipment are tax-free as long as each item is priced under $1,000.

School supplies have savings too! Any school supply item under $20 is exempt from state sales tax also. Now is a great time to stock up on all those things we need while saving some money.
