Shop for emergency supplies, tax-free

Thursday, April 22, 2021 by Tai Moses

Ever since Winter Storm Uri pulverized its way through Central Texas in February, emergency preparedness has been top of mind for many people. Now the Texas comptroller is offering its 2021 Emergency Preparedness Supplies Sales Tax Holiday to make it even easier for residents to replenish (or create) their emergency preparedness kits. Certain emergency preparation supplies can be purchased tax-free during the sales tax holiday, with no limit on the number of qualifying items that can be purchased. This year’s holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, April 24, and ends at midnight on Monday, April 26. Find more details and a list of qualifying supplies here.
