Texas is offering a tax holiday for purchases of certain Energy Star products during its Energy Star Sales Tax Holiday. The tax holiday begins Saturday, May 29, and goes through midnight on Monday, May 31. There is no limit to the number of qualifying items that can be purchased tax free, and buyers do not have to supply sellers with exemption certificates.
During the Energy Star Sales Tax Holiday, buyers can purchase qualifying Energy Star products online, by telephone, mail, custom order, or any other means tax free. This is true if (1) the item is both delivered to the customer and paid for by the customer during the exemption period; or (2) the customer orders and pays for the item, and the seller accepts the order during the exemption period for immediate shipment, even if delivery is made after the exemption period ends. A seller accepts an order when the seller has acted to fill the order for immediate shipment.
