Dated: April 12 2018
Sales Tax Holiday for Emergency Supplies, April 28-30
Don't forget to take advantage of the sales tax holiday!
(AUSTIN) â€” With the potential for severe weather approaching this spring, Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar reminds Texans they can purchase certain items tax-free during the stateâ€™s sales tax holiday for emergency preparation supplies, from April 28 to April 30.
â€śThe severe weather we had last year â€” particularly Hurricane Harvey â€” was a stark reminder that Texans should be prepared for emergencies at all times,â€ť Hegar said. â€śThis tax holiday allows people to save money while ensuring they have the supplies they need before an emergency situation occurs.â€ť
There's no limit on the number of qualifying items you can purchase. These include:
batteries, fuel containers and flashlights priced at less than $75;
hurricane shutters and emergency ladders priced at less than $300; and
portable generators priced at less than $3,000.
Purchases that do not qualify include:
batteries for automobiles, boats and other motorized vehicles;
camping stoves and camping supplies;
extension ladders and stepladders; and
A list of emergency preparation supplies that may be purchased tax-free can be found on the Comptrollerâ€™s website.
The Comptrollerâ€™s office estimates shoppers will save more than $1.5 million in state and local sales taxes during the tax holiday, which was approved by lawmakers during the 2015 Texas Legislature.
