Green Sales Tax Holiday (April 19-25) means savings on energy-efficient appliances
JEFFERSON CITY - Missouri's sixth annual Show-Me Green Sales Tax holiday, which provides shoppers in Missouri with the opportunity to save on energy-efficient appliances begins Saturday, April 19 and runs through Friday, April 25.
Shoppers who purchase new ENERGY STAR®-qualified appliances in Missouri during the holiday will not have to pay the 4.225 percent state sales tax.
Examples of ENERGY STAR®-labeled appliances that qualify for the sales tax exemption are:
- Clothes washers
- Water heaters
- Air conditioners
- Heat pumps
Many local government entities have also opted to participate in the holiday, which means qualified purchases in those areas will be exempt not just from the state sales tax, but also from city, county and special district sales taxes. Twelve counties, 53 cities and 18 special districts have opted to participate in the holiday. For more information on the holiday and to view a list of participating entities, visit the Missouri Department of Revenue's website.
