Emergency Supplies Sales Tax Weekend is April 24-25
One of my favorite weekends of the year is coming up this week: Texas Emergency Supplies Sales Tax Holiday Weekend! I helped get this law passed a few years ago, and now we can all save tax dollars on things we need anyway. Many of these items would have been very helpful to have back in February when our power grid crashed. If it crashes again this summer due to hurricanes, high temps, locusts, or some other passage in the book of Revelation, you’ll want some of these items on hand. Stock up now! The more you spend, the more you save!
These emergency preparation supplies qualify for tax exemption if purchased for a sales price:
Less than $3,000 Portable generators

KR Training, in association with Paul, will offer a two day preparedness weekend August 28-29, 2021. That weekend will include a full day of preparedness-focused medical instruction from Dr. Ben Weger, and a full day of in person activities and hands on instruction from Paul in our air conditioned, indoor classroom at the A-Zone Range.
This two-day event will cover recent developments in the vulnerabilities of the grid, societal unrest, increased response times from law enforcement and EMS, recent weather extremes and possible changes to firearms laws across the country. Students will receive information and guidance on better managing such situations such as dealing with extended utility outages and supply chain disruptions, preparing for a wide spectrum of medical problems, and improving their ability to ready their homes and neighborhoods for prolonged emergencies.
