Shoppers in Texas will be able to save money this weekend when they purchase water- and energy-efficient products.

The state’s Water-Efficient Products and ENERGY STAR® sales tax holidays begin Saturday and run through Monday.

The Texas Comptroller’s office estimates shoppers will save about $14 million in state and local sales taxes during the holidays.

Products displaying a WaterSense® label or logo can be purchased tax free for personal or business use.  These include showerheads, bathroom sink faucets and accessories, toilets, urinals and landscape irrigation controls.

The sales tax holidays also apply to lawn and garden products that help conserve water outdoors.  Items qualifying for the exemption include soaker or drip-irrigation hoses; moisture controls for sprinkler or irrigation systems; mulch; and plants, trees and grasses. These items can be purchased tax free for residential use only.

During the ENERGY STAR® holiday, certain energy-efficient products displaying the ENERGY STAR® logo can be purchased tax-free, including air conditioners priced at $6,000 or less, refrigerators priced at $2,000 or less, ceiling fans, compact fluorescent light bulbs, integral LED bulbs, dishwashers, dehumidifiers and clothes washing machines.
