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!

Energy Star Appliances Have Sales Tax Holiday This Weekend

May 25th, 2010

Shop for Appliances This Weekend During ENERGY STAR® Sales Tax Holiday

(AUSTIN) — This Memorial Day weekend’s third-annual ENERGY STAR® Sales Tax Holiday is a great time for Texans to purchase a new, energy efficient air conditioner, refrigerator, dishwasher or other major appliance. During the three-day tax holiday, running May 29 – 31, shoppers do not have to pay state and local sales and use taxes on certain energy efficient products.

“If you’ve had your eye on a new appliance, or just want to stock up on light bulbs, you can save money by shopping this weekend,” said Texas Comptroller Susan Combs. “We expect Texans to save about $3 million overall in state and local sales taxes during this weekend’s event.” 

The tax holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, May 29, and ends at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, May 31. The tax holiday applies only to the following appliances and household equipment bearing an ENERGY STAR label: air conditioners priced less than $6,000, refrigerators priced less than $2,000, ceiling fans, incandescent and fluorescent light bulbs, clothes washers, dishwashers, dehumidifiers and programmable thermostats, along with installation and delivery charges for these products.
