East Texans make their way to Tyler over Tax Free Weekend to take advantage of savings on all of their back-to-school necessities. On Saturday, KETK spoke with shoppers at Broadway Square Mall about their savings efforts.
Texas Tax Free Weekend
Everybody wants to save money, whether they are parents buying items for their children or children buying items for themselves. The Texas Tax Free Weekend had helped residents have big time savings on selected items.
With the end of Texas Tax Free Weekend last August 13 as reported in KETK, people who participated said that every penny counts and tax free weekends are a great way to save.

The Texas Tax Free Weekend lasted from August 11 to August 13. Only qualified products purchased during the sales tax holiday are free from sales tax. No items purchased before to or after the sales tax holiday are exempt, and no tax refund is given.
The goods on the list that are eligible for tax exemption during the sales tax holiday must be priced under $100, according to the Texas Comptroller’s Office.
With the end of this year’s Texas Tax Free Weekend, another leg will follow but that would be for next year.
