Ruth Ann on Real Estate

I hope you enjoy my thoughts on real estate, market statistics, how-to's, and pieces I find interesting on buying, selling, remodeling, new construction, investing, and saving your resources.

Thanks for taking the time to read my posts. Feedback is always welcome/encouraged. Feel free to ask questions. About me: My business is primarily residential real estate (helping buyers, sellers, landlords & tenants), and I generally work with referred clients. I love real estate because I learn something new every day and get to work with great people. I am blogging so I can share some of my insight and experiences with those of you who want to buy or sell. Enjoy!

Don't Forget - Sales Tax Holiday This Weekend on Energy Star Appliances


May 25th, 2011


Save On Appliances This Weekend During ENERGY STAR® Sales Tax Holiday

(AUSTIN) — Texas’ fourth-annual ENERGY STAR® Sales Tax Holiday this Memorial Day weekend is a great time to purchase new energy efficient appliances without paying state or local sales taxes on qualifying items.

“When you buy an appliance that is ENERGY STAR rated, you will not only save the sales tax, you will also save on your monthly utility bills by reducing your water and energy use,” Texas Comptroller Susan Combs said.

The ENERGY STAR Sales Tax Holiday begins Saturday, May 28, and runs through Memorial Day, Monday, May 30.  The tax savings apply to the following appliances and household equipment bearing the ENERGY STAR label: central or room air conditioners priced at $6,000 or less, refrigerators priced at $2,000 or less, ceiling fans, compact fluorescent light bulbs, clothes washers, dishwashers, dehumidifiers and programmable thermostats.

More information about the tax holiday is available at www.texaspowerfulsmart.org.  For details about ENERGY STAR products, visit www.energystar.gov.
