Sales Tax Holiday for Emergency Supplies, April 28-30

With the potential for severe weather approaching this spring, Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar reminds Texans they can purchase certain items tax-free during the state’s sales tax holiday for portable generators priced at less than $3,000.

Purchases that do not qualify include: batteries for automobiles, boats and other motorized vehicles, camping stoves and camping supplies, chainsaws, plywood, extension ladders and stepladders, and tents.

A list of emergency preparation supplies that may be purchased tax-free can be found on the Comptroller’s website.
