With the start of the new school year around the corner, State Representative Dwayne Bohac (R-Houston) reminds families and shoppers to take advantage of our state's annual sales tax holiday this weekend, August 10-12. The three-day sales tax holiday exempts Texas shoppers from paying sales and use taxes on most clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks priced under $100.
I am honored to represent our community in the Texas House and will continue to fight hard for property tax relief, public safety, flood control and strengthening public education.
Voted “Taxpayers’ Best Friend” by His Colleagues in the Texas House
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
As a lifelong resident of House District 138, improving local quality of life has always been my top priority. That’s why I’m leading the fight to lower property taxes and working with parents, teachers and local school board members to improve and strengthen public education.
And together with my colleagues at the local, state and federal level, we are securing the tens of billions of dollars needed to recover, repair and rebuild from Hurricane Harvey and other recent floods to protect our neighborhoods from future flooding threats.
With your support on November 6th, I’ll continue to work hard and deliver results for our local communities.
