Show-Me Green Sales Tax Holiday Information for Consumers
The Show-Me Green Sales Tax Holiday exempts state sales tax on retail sales of qualifying energy star certified new appliances, up to one thousand five hundred dollars per appliance, during a seven-day period beginning at 12:01 a.m. on April nineteenth and ending at midnight on April twenty-fifth.
The following energy star certified appliances qualify for the holiday.
- Clothes washers
- Clothes dryers
- Water heaters
- Trash compactors*
- Conventional ovens*
- Air conditioners
- Heat pumps
*According to the Energy Star Website, trash compactors, conventional ovens, ranges and stoves do not receive an energy star rating. Therefore, although the statute anticipates that some day they may receive the energy star rating, tax will continue to apply to purchases of these items during the upcoming Show-Me Green Sales Tax Holiday.
Cities, counties and districts may also participate in the sales tax holiday by enacting an ordinance exempting their locally imposed sales tax during the Show-Me Green Sales Tax Holiday.
Retailer’s selling less than two percent of the qualifying merchandise, shall offer a sales tax refund in lieu of the sales tax holiday.
