The Texas legislature recently passed a bill, S.B. 379, that exempts certain family care items from sales and use taxes as of September 1, 2023. This tax exemption aims to alleviate the financial burden on families by reducing the cost of essential items.

Under the new legislation, a total of 18 categories of items are now exempted from sales and use taxes. These categories include:

  • Drugs
  • Medical devices
  • Diapers
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Maternity clothing
  • Breast milk pumping products
  • Baby bottles
  • And many more! The full list can be found in the official bill document linked above.

The bill seeks to support families by reducing the cost of caring for infants, children, and individuals with specific health needs.
