This tax holiday applied earlier this year but has NOT yet been approved by the Texas Legislature for 2023. As soon as I receive further information, this page will be updated. Be sure to check back often!
Don’t miss the Texas Energy Star Sales Tax Holiday when shopping for appliances and light bulbs. This 3 day tax free event takes place over Memorial Day Weekend:

On these dates, you can purchase qualifying items free of Texas state and local sales tax. All items MUST be ENERGY STAR labeled:
– Air conditioners priced at $6,000 or less
– Refrigerators priced at $2,000 or less

Delivery, shipping, handling, and transportation charges by the seller are part of the item’s sales price. Charges for installing free-standing items are also part of the item’s sales price. All of these charges qualify for the tax exemption.
