This Weekend’s Sales Tax Holiday a Chance to Support Local Businesses

NFIB State Director Annie Spilman says Texas’s upcoming sales tax holiday on clothes, shoes, and school supplies is a chance for people to support small businesses rocked by the series of economic setbacks that began with the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. This year’s back-to-school tax holiday is Aug. 5-7. 

“This year’s sales tax holiday couldn’t come at a better time for Texas’s small businesses,” Spilman said. “We may be doing better than other states, but we aren’t exempt from things like inflation and supply chain disruptions,” she said.

“Shopping at locally-owned businesses during this tax holiday is a great way to get ready for school and help the small, independent businesses that create jobs and do a lot throughout the year to support their communities,” Spilman said. 

Small business owners surveyed for NFIB’s latest Small Business Economic Trends report ranked inflation as the No. 1 issue affecting their business, followed by quality of labor.
