Please pass along to anyone in the new home appliance (or dorm-sized refrigerator) market…
Good News! This Memorial Day weekend (May 24-26), Texas shoppers get a break from sales tax for purchases of most energy-star appliances and energy-efficient products like refrigerators and clothes washers ~ even energy-star rated college-dorm-sized refrigerators and light bulbs qualify! 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 energy-star products qualifying in 2014 include:
- Refrigerators priced at $2,000 or less
- Ceiling fans
- Incandescent and fluorescent light bulbs
- Clothes washers
- Energy Star Labeled Programmable thermostats
- Air conditioners priced at $6,000 or less
The 2014 sales tax holiday begins on Saturday, May 24, and ends on Monday, May 26 (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 to the number of qualifying items one can purchase during this sales tax holiday.
To find out more, go to the Texas comptroller’s site, here.
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.
