  • TEXAS Residents - Energy Star Sales Tax Holiday (May 24 – 26, 2008)

    Energy Star Sales Tax Holiday
    Memorial Day Weekend
    May 24 – 26, 2008



    During Memorial Day weekend, Texas shoppers get a break from state and local sales and use taxes on purchases of certain energy efficient products. The 2008 Energy Star sales tax holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, May 24, and ends at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, May 26 (Memorial Day).
    The products qualifying for the exemption are:
    • air conditioners priced under $6,000 (room and central units)
    • clothes washers (but not clothes dryers*)
    • ceiling fans
    • dehumidifiers
    • dishwashers
    • light bulbs (incandescent and fluorescent)
    • programmable thermostats
    • refrigerators priced under $2,000.
    * Because most dryers use similar amounts of energy, Energy Star does not label clothes dryers.
    Qualifying products will display the Energy Star logo, which may appear on the appliance, the packaging or the Energy Guide label. Energy Star is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy. Earning the Energy Star means a product meets strict energy efficiency guidelines set by these two federal agencies.
    There is no limit on the number of qualifying items one can purchase during this sales tax holiday, and an exemption certificate is not required.
    Internet and Catalog Sales

    The tax-free holiday also applies to Internet and catalog sales of eligible products, provided that (1) the items are both paid for and delivered to the purchaser during the exemption period; or (2) the purchaser orders and pays for the item and the retailer accepts the order during the exemption period for immediate shipment, even if delivery is made after the exemption period.
    The retailer accepts an order when the retailer has taken action to fill the order for immediate shipment. Actions to fill an order include placement of an "in date" stamp on a mail order and issuing a confirmation verifying the date the seller accepted the order. An order is considered "for immediate shipment" even if delivery or shipment may be delayed because of a backlog of orders or because an item is temporarily out of stock or on back order by the seller.
