Emergency supplies’ sales tax holiday April 25-27

Published

on

April 25-27 has been set as sales tax holiday for emergency supplies in the State of Texas.
As the nation continues to shelter in place because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar is urging Texans to shop online or practice strict social distancing measures for in-store purchases during the sales tax holiday for emergency preparation supplies.
The primary intent of the law that established this holiday, which begins at 12:01 a.m. on April 25, and ends at midnight on April 27, is to help Texans prepare for events like hurricanes and turbulent spring storms.
“Unfortunately, strong spring storms, wildfires and the upcoming hurricane season will still threaten Texans in the months ahead, and so it’s important that homes and businesses have the supplies they need to face these emergencies,” Hegar said. “As this pandemic continues to spread, I want to remind all Texans this sales tax holiday applies to qualifying items they purchase online, from the safety of their homes. If visiting your local retailer please practice appropriate social distancing.”
There’s no limit on the number of qualifying items you can purchase. These include:
• Household batteries, fuel containers and flashlights priced at less than $75;
• Hurricane shutters and emergency ladders priced at less than $300; and
• Portable generators priced at less than $3,000.
