Bookmark and Share

Please pass along to anyone in the home improvement market…


Good News! During Memorial Day weekend, Texas shoppers get a break from
sales tax on purchases of some appliances and energy-efficient products like refrigerators and clothes washers ~ even lightbulbs!  This is a great way to get an extra “discount” and save on future energy costs if you are in the market for any of these items.

The products qualifying for the tax exemption are:

  • Refrigerators priced at $2,000 or less (college dorm-sized refrigerators even qualify)!
  • Ceiling fans
  • Incandescent and fluorescent light bulbs
  • Clothes washers
  • Dishwashers
  • Dehumidifiers
  • Energy Star Labeled Programmable thermostats
  • Air conditioners priced at $6,000 or less

The 2011 sales tax holiday begins on Saturday, May 28, and ends
on Monday, May 30 (Memorial Day Weekend).

Qualifying products will need to display the ENERGY STAR logo. The discount can also apply to delivery and installation fees and  there is  no limit on the number of qualifying items one can purchase during this sales tax holiday.

P.S.  Be sure to check out this extra savings tip:  Pop over to Amazon’s Energy Star Appliance Rebate finder page (go here & look for the Energy Star Logo link in the left column)They have an easy to search database of Energy Star rebates on qualified products, as well as recycling incentives for the proper disposal of old products.
