Missouri’s fifth annual Show-Me Green Sales Tax Holiday, which provides shoppers in Missouri the opportunity to save on energy-efficient appliances, runs through Thursday, April 25.
People who purchase new Energy Star®-qualified appliances in Missouri during the holiday will save a minimum of 4.225 percent off their purchase, which represents the state sales tax. The reduced price represents the elimination of the state’s sales tax from the purchase.
Energy Star®-labeled appliances that qualify for the sales tax exemption include clothes washers, refrigerators, freezers, dishwashers, water heaters, furnaces, air conditioners and heat pumps.
More information about the Energy Star® program is available at www.energystar.gov.
While some local counties, municipalities and governmental entities have also opted to participate in the holiday, Phelps County and none of the incorporated cities within the county were listed as participating on the Missouri Department of Revenue’s website. However, people who shop in the county can still save on the state sales tax.
