KRLD — Texas shoppers purchasing certain energy efficient products will get a break from state and local sales taxes over Memorial Day Weekend.

The 2014 ENERGY STAR sales tax holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday and ends at 11:59 p.m. on Monday.

The products qualifying for exemption are:

- Air conditioners priced at $6,000 or less
– Refrigerators priced at $2,000 or less
– Ceiling fans
– Incandescent and fluorescent light bulbs
– Clothes washers
– Dishwashers
– Dehumidifiers
– Programmable thermostats (certain models)

All qualifying products will display the ENERGY STAR logo. There is no limit to the number of eligible purchases one can make during this holiday.

Purchases made online — as well as layaway purchases — also qualify, but must meet specific requirements.

The state provides specific rules for the holiday weekend purchases here.
