Lubbock residents benefit from tax free holiday

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Whether you need a new appliance or you're just looking to go green, the state of Texas wants to help you out with that. For the 2nd year in a row the state declared this weekend tax free for the green appliances known as Energy Star.

"Memorial Day is always our biggest weekend of the year, and with the state tax free weekend we're expecting to see a ton of customers come in and take advantage of huge savings with the tax break on all of the Energy Star items," said Lowe's manager Gregg Grover. 

Grover also says they save you money in the long run, "all these products give you great savings with your electric bill, with your water bill, they are good for the environment and your can save on your monthly expenses which most customers right now in today's economy are looking for anyway to save on their monthly bills."  By investing in Energy Star appliances you could possibly save up to $50 a month depending on the size of your family.

Several stores in Lubbock offer appliances that qualify for the tax break, but only products with the Energy Star logo will get you that tax break.

The tax free weekend started Saturday and continues through Monday.
