Sales Tax Holiday On Emergency Supplies

DENTON, Texas – FEMA Region 6 underscores the significance of this year’s tax-free weekend starting April 27, urging Texans to seize this opportunity to stock up on emergency supplies.

Residents can buy supplies and equipment for emergencies or natural disasters during the Texas Comptroller’s 2024 “Emergency Preparation Sales Tax Holiday.” No sales tax will be collected for eligible purchases made from 12:01 am on Saturday, April 27, to midnight on Monday, April 29.

Eligible items are helpful during hurricanes, flash floods, wildfires, power outages, or other emergencies. Examples include portable generators, emergency ladders, hurricane shutters, and fire extinguishers.

Texans may also buy batteries, flashlights, first aid kits, and ice chests/coolers for general emergency preparedness needs.

Texans can make their purchases either in-store or online. While there is no limit on the number of items, it’s important to note that there are sales price limits. For instance, a rescue ladder must cost less than $300. If it costs $299, plus a $10 delivery charge, it would not qualify. A total purchase price of $309 would incur sales tax.
