Sales tax fix for Radio kicks in Sept. 1
Oscar Rodriguez, TAB President
Beginning Sept. 1, radio stations can purchase digital transmission equipment tax-free just as their television counterparts already can, thanks to legislation TAB successfully advanced in the Texas Legislature this year. For some stations, the savings could be as high as $10,000 and it comes at a time when a new vehicle with factory-installed HD Radio technology is sold every 3.5 seconds in Texas.
