In case you didn't know, this Memorial Day Weekend will mark the second year that Texas has allowed the Energy Star Sales Tax Holiday. Sales tax will not be collected across the state for the following items:
* air conditioners priced less than $6,000
* ceiling fans
* incandescent and fluorescent light bulbs
* programmable thermostats
* refrigerators priced less than $2,000
* clothes washers
For a full list of rules and regulations regarding this tax holiday, visit the state's Energy Star Holiday FAQs page.
The period for tax-free purchasing is, according to the website, "beginning at 12:01 a.m. on the Saturday preceding the last Monday in May (Memorial Day) and ending at 11:59 p.m. on the last Monday in May."' That would be the 23rd-25th of May, or this coming weekend.
