The Show Me Green Sales Tax Holiday exempts state sales tax on retail sales of qualifying ENERGY STAR certified new appliances, up to $1,500 per appliance, during a seven-day period beginning at 12:01 a.m. on April 19 and ending at midnight on April 25.

Qualifying Items:

The following ENERGY STAR certified appliances qualify for the holiday.

  • Clothes washers
  • Clothes dryers
  • Water heaters
  • Trash compactors*
  • Dishwashers
  • Conventional ovens*
  • Ranges*
  • Stoves*
  • Air conditioners
  • Furnaces
  • Refrigerators
  • Freezers 
  • 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.

Retailer’s selling less than 2% of the qualifying merchandise shall offer a sales tax refund in lieu of the sales tax holiday.
