State to Waive Taxes on Energy Star Purchases

AUSTIN- Texas will offer a tax break next weekend to consumers buying specific energy efficient appliances.

During the Memorial Day Weekend, state sales taxes will be waived for appliances with the "Energy Star" logo.

State officials say in addition to the up front savings shoppers will experience, the energy efficient products can also help reduce utility bills.

Shoppers are expected to save almost four million dollars in state and local sales tax during the Memorial Day sales tax holiday.
