Memorial Day Weekend is the time to stock up on water saving items from flowers to irrigation systems
April 10, 2017: The Texas Nursery & Landscape Association and Texas Water Smart are excited to announce the second annual Lawn & Garden Water Smart Tax Holiday! This Memorial Day Weekend, May 27-29, consumers can purchase water saving items without paying sales tax. Water saving items, as defined by the Texas Comptroller can include any plant product, any product with a Water Sense label, mulch, irrigation systems and many more!
The tax holiday was established in 2016 to encourage Texans to be Water Smart! Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar said, “Ensuring Texans have an adequate supply of water is a fundamental if we want to continue creating jobs and growing the economy,” he continued, “[The] Tax Holiday helps Texas consumers be water smart, saving money and water in their outdoor landscapes.”
Consumers who would like more information on the products and plants they can purchase tax free during the tax holiday should visit landscapetexas.org. Businesses looking for information and marketing tools, should visit tnlaonline.org or the Texas Comptroller’s website.
