With the potential for severe weather approaching this Spring, Texans are reminded they can purchase certain items tax-free during the state’s sales tax holiday for emergency preparation supplies, which occurs April 27-29.

More than $1.6 million in state and local sales taxes is estimated to be saved during the tax holiday. For a listing of items on the tax-free list, see the April 18 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
