Memorial Day Sales Tax Holiday for Energy Star Products

Texans will once again have the opportunity to save energy, water, and money over the Memorial Day weekend.  Certain Energy Star approved items will be exempt from sales tax Saturday, May 24, through Monday, May 26.

The products qualifying for the exemption are:

  • Ÿair conditioners priced under $6,000
  • Ÿclothes washers
  • Ÿceiling fans
  • Ÿdehumidifiers
  • Ÿdishwashers
  • Ÿincandescent and fluorescent light bulbs
  • Ÿrefrigerators priced under $2,000

Qualifying products display the ENERGY STAR logo on the appliance, the packaging or the Energy Guide label.  Significant annual savings can be realized by replacing old appliances with ENERGY STAR products.  For instance, an ENERGY STAR clothes washer can result in an annual energy savings of 20% and water savings of 35%.  Compact fluorescent light bulbs can lower annual energy costs by 75%.
