Sales Tax Holiday Weekend Starts Friday

Back to School is in full swing with the Texas annual Sales-Tax Holiday Weekend August 17-19th in Pearland area stores. Southern Trails residents enjoy a short drive over to the Pearland Town Center or retailers at Hwy. 288 and FM 518 to take full advantage on the break from state and local taxes.

Clothing, accessories, and school supplies for the new school year are hot on the lists of many Pearland area residents. With so many shopping choices in the area, Southern Trails residents don’t have to travel far to snap up fashionable finds along with the necessities for back to school.  

The three-day break from state and local sales taxes applies to many items priced under $100 including:
•    Backpacks
•    Clothes
•    Most footwear
•    Coats
•    Uniforms
•    School supplies
