This edition of my newsletter contains a few updates from around the state that I am sure will be helpful to you and your family. I hope that you and your family are enjoying the final few weeks of summer. With school right around the corner, I want to be sure to remind you that the sales tax-free weekend is coming up. August 10-12 will allow you to purchase approved items without sales tax. You can find more information from the comptroller in my Updates from Austin section of the newsletter.
Please note that the deadline to submit claims for flooding damage from Hurricane Harvey is August 25, 2018, the one year anniversary of when the historic hurricane made landfall. If you have not already done so, please be sure to get your claims in as soon as possible. This is an important step in recovery, and I do not want you to miss an opportunity.
The Harris County Flood Control District Election is also being held on the anniversary of Harvey’s landfall: August 25. I encourage you to look at the links in the following newsletter to be sure that you are informed when the election comes around.
