We have until midnight tonight (April 25th, 2022) to take advantage of the 2022 Emergency Preparation Supplies Sales Tax Holiday. This year we had a mild winter, but the tornadoes have already been out of hand.

It's always something in Texas, so it's best to be prepared. The Texas State Comptroller has given this Sales Tax Holiday and you should take advantage. This could save you quite a bit, especially if you are looking to get a portable generator.

If you can find a portable generator under $3,000 it will qualify for this Sales Tax Holiday. Being without power is a real concern in our modern lives. Considering the cost of the groceries in your refrigerator it's essential to protect that investment.
