Texas Energy Star Sales Tax Holiday This Weekend

Facebook

Texas consumers can get a break from sales taxes on certain appliances and fixtures this weekend, according to the Texas Comptroller’s Office.

The 2013 Energy Star sales tax holiday begins after midnight on Saturday, May 25th and runs through Monday, May 27th.

Products that qualify for the exemption include:

  • Air conditioners priced at $6,000 or less
  • Refrigerators priced at $2,000 or less
  • Ceiling fans
  • Incandescent and fluorescent light bulbs
  • Clothes washers
  • Dishwashers
  • Dehumidifiers
  • Programmable thermostats

Since most clothes dryers use similar amounts of energy, Energy Star does not label clothes dryers.

Qualifying products will display the Energy Star logo.

Energy Star is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy.

There is no limit on the number of qualifying items one can purchase during the sales tax holiday, and an exemption certificate is not required.

The tax-free holiday also applies to internet and catalog sales of eligible products, provided that the item is paid for and delivered to the purchaser during the exemption period, or the purchaser orders and pays for the item and the retailer accepts the order during the exemption period for immediate shipment, even if delivery is made after the holiday.

More information is available from the Texas Comptroller’s Office.
