Please pass this along to anyone you know who might be in the market for appliances, ceiling fans, or other Energy Star qualifying products (this can save them a bundle!)…
This Memorial Day weekend (May 23-25), Texas shoppers will again receive a break from paying sales tax on purchases of many energy-efficient products like fluorescent lightbulbs, ceiling fans, and energy-star home appliances — even energy-star rated college-dorm / compact-sized refrigerators qualify! This is an excellent way to get extra savings on any of the qualifying items, plus save on future energy costs too.
The energy-star products qualifying in 2015’s tax-free weekend 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 2015 sales tax holiday begins on Saturday, May 23, and ends on Monday, May 25 (Memorial Day Weekend).
Qualifying products will need to display the ENERGY STAR logo which may appear on the appliance, the packaging or the Energy Guide label. 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.
