On Tuesday Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar announced the Emergency Preparation Supplies Sales Tax Holiday. This year’s holiday starts at 12:01 am on Saturday, April 25th and ends at midnight on Monday, April 27th. In a news release, Comptroller Hager reminds Texans that when buying online, by telephone, mail, custom order, or by means other than in-person qualifies as long as the customer pays for the item during that sales tax holiday period, and that order is excepted by the retailer. That is true even if the delivery is made after the exemption period. Purchases that do not qualify include batteries for automobiles, boats and other motorized vehicles. Also excluded are camping stoves and camping supplies as well as chainsaws. ************************************************ Texas Workforce:  We have had a hard time getting information from the Texas Workforce Commission for citizens but the Liberty Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce was in a conference call recently that included Congressman Dr. Brian Babin, The Texas Chamber of Commerce and the U.S. Chamber. That effort produced answers to our most frequently asked questions. Now effective the Texas Workforce Commission has new call center hours from 7 a.m. - 7 p.m. and has moved to a seven day work week to handle the hundreds of thousands of calls from Texans seeking unemployment benefits. The number to call is 800.939.6631. Their Unemployment Benefit System online portal is available 24 hours a day but is experiencing a high volume of visitors. The tip from the Texas Workforce Commission is they are seeing lower volume on that online portal between the late night hours of 10:00 PM. and 8 AM.  Lake Release: 26,200  CFS – Liberty Bridge: 25.05 ASL ReplyForward
