Tax-Free Weekend in Texas Is Coming Up

Senate Bill 226 has established the tax-free weekend as a permanent day.

State Sen. Rob McColley, R-Napoleon, expects Ohioans to save millions of dollars this year on back-to-school shopping. Clothing items up to $75 each and school supplies or instructional materials up to $20 each will be free of taxes if purchased during this weekend.

Jermaine McClendon: "Even though it doesn't seem like a lot, it does add up". Backpacks, lunch boxes and all kinds of accessories like handbags, belts and barrettes. That will include most shoes, coats and jackets and baby clothes.

A report, released in July by the Tax Foundation, says temporary tax exemptions are a "political gimmick" that cause more harm than good and fail to solve larger policy issues. Over the years, I've learned that it's definitely worthwhile. "Every time you go up the road to spend your money you take it from the area". "We are really excited to kick off back-to-school with a brand new Pickup Tower in our store", said Store Manager Jason Sachs at the Walmart Supercenter on Carlisle Boulevard.

US diplomats met Taliban commanders in Qatar
After fighting a war for nearly two decades, both the U.S. and the Taliban now feel that a military solution is nearly impossible. They also say that unless they can allay United States concerns about the group, an agreement with Kabul would be meaningless.

That includes binders and calculators, and construction paper, poster board, glue and scissors for those school projects.

Hollenbeck expects that 70 percent or more Ohioans or more will be shopping this weekend. The gift certificate can be used at any of the participating chamber businesses and works just like cash or a gift card.

Until midnight Sunday, many items of apparel, along with school supplies, computers and related equipment, can be purchased without paying the state and local sales tax.

We've got the list from the Florida Department of Revenue.
