Texas recently created a sales tax holiday for emergency preparation supplies. The holiday will take place on the weekend before the last Monday in April.

The sales tax holiday will apply to sales of emergency preparation items. "Emergency preparation items" include certain portable generators, storm protection devices, rescue ladders, reusable or artificial ice products, gasoline or diesel fuel containers, certain batteries, nonelectric coolers or ice chests, tarpaulins, portable self-powered radios, fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, hatchets, self-contained first aid kits, and nonelectric can openers. These items are only exempt if they do not exceed $3000 (for the generators), $300 (for the storm protection devices and ladders), or $75 (for all other items).

The law that creates the sales tax holiday will go into effect September 1, 2015. The first sales tax holiday for these items will be in April of 2016.
