Texas, the second-largest U.S. state, is also the second most populated. The Lone Star State gained its independence from Mexico in 1836, joining the United States in 1845, an event that would set off the Mexican-American War.
Texas has long been associated with the image of the cowboy; cattle ranching and oil mining have long been among the state’s top industries. Modest quantities of both gold and silver have been mined here in the past.
In 2013, Texas passed legislation that removed its sales tax on purchases of gold, silver, platinum and palladium bullion, as well as numismatic coins. Previously, there was a 6.25% tax on precious metals purchases under $1,000, which made it difficult for investors who were looking to accumulate smaller amounts over time.
HB78 amended Sec. 151.336 of the tax code and was signed into law in June 2013. It was first time that a state has expanded an existing sales tax exemption for gold and silver.
