Does Texas Have Sales Tax on Food?

The closest Sam's Club to me is in Sherman Texas. I was wondering if Texas has sales tax on food? I know here in Oklahoma, the tax is 8.75%. Thanks in advance.

No sales tax on food in Texas, except prepared food (restaurants, etc.).

Texas has no state tax either. Can't wait to get moved there.

Hope you're ready for the high property taxes.
Have to remember that the state must make up for not having state tax in other ways.

Property taxes are not assessed by the state. They vary by county/city/etc. -- but aren't any worse than any place else I have lived.

I am a Texan native. Born and bred. Property taxes depends on where you live and if you live in a rich neighborhood then your taxes are gonna be high. If you live in the country..your taxes could be cheap. Cheapest areas (tax wise) is West or East Texas (some areas are growing though).

They aren't too bad depends on where you live and you can take them off your Federal taxes.
