Shoppers in Texas can save money this weekend on water- and energy-efficient products.
The state’s Water Efficient Products and ENERGY STAR® sales tax holidays are underway and continue through Monday.
The state Comptroller’s office estimates shoppers will save about $12.6 million in state and local sales taxes during the holidays.
Products showing a WaterSense® label or logo can be purchased tax-free for personal or business use, including: showerheads, bathroom sink faucets and accessories, toilets, urinals and landscape irrigation controls.
The sales tax holiday also applies to lawn and garden products that help conserve water outdoors.
During the ENERGY STAR® holiday, certain energy-efficient products showing the ENERGY STAR logo can be purchased tax-free, including: air conditioners at or under $6,000, refrigerators $2,000 or less, ceiling fans, fluorescent light bulbs, dishwashers, dehumidifiers, and clothes washing machines.
