(Austin) -- The opportunity for Texans to save money on energy efficient appliances is fast approaching. The state’s annual ENERGY STAR® Sales Tax Holiday is from Saturday May 26 through Monday May 28, 2012.
“As Texans focus on their household budgets, they can save twice on energy efficient appliances purchased during Memorial Day weekend,” Texas Comptroller Susan Combs said. “Shoppers do not have to pay sales tax on the appliances, and those energy efficient products will also help them save on their utility bills.”
The sales tax break applies to ENERGY STAR® qualified air conditioners priced at $6,000 or less; refrigerators priced at $2,000 or less; ceiling fans; fluorescent light bulbs; clothes washers; dishwashers; dehumidifiers; and programmable thermostats.
