TULSA — With the school year right around the corner, Oklahoma parents are looking to save some money for their children.

Beginning Friday, families can head to area stores to participate in Oklahoma's tax-free weekend, officials say.

Officials say qualified items will be sold without a sales tax beginning on Aug. 2 at 12:01 a.m.

Officials say the state's annual sales tax holiday ends Sunday, Aug. 4 at 11:59 a.m.

The Oklahoma Tax Commission says clothing and footwear under $100 will be tax-free during this event.

However, the tax exempt weekend "does not apply to the sale of any accessories or to the sale of any special clothing or footwear primarily designed for athletic activity or protective use or to the rental of clothing or footwear," documents state.

Other items that are not a part of the tax-free holiday are jewelry, handbags, wallets, umbrellas, watches, briefcases, luggage, hair bows, and hair clips.

Some of the items that are tax-free include:

  • Aprons, household and shop
