Friday is the beginning of the Sales Tax Holiday across Texas. I want to encourage our community to get out and support local retailers this weekend, and save a little extra while you’re at it. All tax free items this weekend can be found at TexasTaxHoliday.org, the list includes various apparel, school supplies and other items.
I would also like to urge you, especially if you visit independent stores or shops, to visit with the owners and thank them for the value they provide to our community. Running a business is not easy, especially in an over-regulated business environment. These business leaders provide employment to our friends and neighbors, and they set a good example for many others to follow.
