Lake Ray Hubbard Life: August 2011

Get Ready Dallas it's time for the Texas Tax Free Shopping Weekend, Aug 19-21 2011

It's here ... It's here ... TAX FREE SHOPPING WEEKEND!!!
 
That's right ... there is NO Sales Tax my fellow Texans on a good number of items this weekend, Aug 19th-21st! This "shopping holiday" comes just in time for most Dallas/Ft Worth families as a majority of area schools around the DFW Metroplex First Day of School is Monday 22nd.
 
In this economy, we've all learned to really stretch the dollar and Back to School Shopping is no 2011 Tax Free Shopping weekendexception! In addition to getting items without paying the 8.25% Sales Tax, many stores are offering Special Sales and Coupons. So channel your inner Extreame Couponing fabulous~ness and 
  • Plan out your School Supply/Clothes Shopping for the year, or as much as possible 
  • Partner Coupons & additional Store Sales to really get more bang for your buck all while Not Paying TAXES
  • Don't do all your shopping in 1 store ... buy the deals at the store then move on to another store and buy their deals. Yes, this means your going to have to do a little "recon" 
So just WHAT is on the TAX FREE SHOPPING LIST? More than you'd think! Baby & even Adult Diapers, School Supplies, Computers, Pajamas, & even Neck Ties! Unfortunetely, most sporting items like football cleats, volleyball knee pads, ect are NOT included in this Tax Free Shopping Holiday. Click here to see the what is and isn't included on the TAX FREE SHOPPING LIST
 
Oh, and 1 more thing, NO, you don't need to take your kid shopping with you or fill out any forms proving you have kiddos. However, just make sure you don't pay with a Company Credit Card or Company Check.
