During Memorial Day weekend, Texas residents get a break from state and local sales and use taxes on purchases of certain energy efficient products. The 2008 Energy Star sales tax holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, May 24, and ends at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, May 26. The products qualifying for exemption are:
Air Conditioners priced under $6,000 (room and central units)
Light Bulbs (incandescent and fluorescent)
Refrigerators priced under $2,000
I found this info from Costco of all places. Does anyone know if other states are participating in a similar tax break? Let us know!
