There will be a sales tax holiday for emergency supplies April 24 through 26, Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar said Tuesday. 

Texans can buy certain items tax-free during that time, Hegar said.

“While we can't know when the next flood, tornado or hurricane may strike, we can make sure our families, homes and businesses have the supplies they need to face these and other emergencies,” Hegar said. "This tax holiday can help Texans save money while stocking up for emergency situations."

There's no limit on the number of qualifying items you can purchase. These include household batteries, fuel containers and flashlights priced at less than $75; hurricane shutters and emergency ladders priced at less than $300; and portable generators priced at less than $3,000.
