The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts announced the first sales-tax holiday for water-efficient products will be Saturday through Monday, May 28-30. This is the first year that certain water-efficient and water-conserving products join the annual Energy Star sales-tax holiday since the program started in 2010.

The Texas Department of Agriculture encourages all Texans to take advantage of this new offer as conserving water and reducing water usage is important to our state’s future viability and economic outlook. One way residents can reduce outdoor water use is to plant drought-tolerant varieties of flowers, shrubs and trees that have been tested against Texas’ tough conditions. These plants are easily identified by their Texas Superstar tag.

Texas Superstar plants are extensively researched by the Texas A&M Agrilife Extension and Research Services before becoming eligible to receive the Superstar designation. These plants must perform reliably in terms of growth, blooming and water needs while exposed to the wide variety of conditions found across the state. Once a variety has been studied and deemed acceptable, it is added to the official Superstar list and then can be marketed as a Texas Superstar.

For a full list of eligible water-saving products, visit the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts’ website at http://comptroller.texas.gov/taxinfo/taxpubs/tx98_1018.h
