Please share on Facebook or pass this along to anyone you know who might be in the market for new appliances, ceiling fans, air conditioners, clothes washers, or other Energy Star qualifying products (this can save them a bundle!)…even incandescent and fluorescent light bulbs receive tax-free status this weekend!
This Memorial Day weekend (Saturday, May 28 to Monday, May 30), Texas shoppers receive a break from paying sales tax on purchases of many energy-efficient products like fluorescent light bulbs, ceiling fans, and energy-star home appliances like refrigerators, washers, and more — 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 2016’s tax-free weekend include:
- Refrigerators priced at $2,000 or less
- Ceiling fans
- Incandescent and fluorescent light bulbs
- Clothes washers
- Air conditioners priced at $6,000 or less
- Delivery, shipping, and handling for any of these items are also excluded from tax!
The 2016 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 which will appear on the appliance, the packaging, or the Energy Guide label. The discount also applies to delivery and installation fees and there is no limit to the number of qualifying items one can purchase during this sales tax holiday.
