Sales tax holiday for appliances will take place October 5 through 7
Governor Nathan Deal announced Monday that sales tax holiday in which state residents can save money on ENERGY STAR labeled appliances.
The sales tax holiday will take place Oct. 5-7 and will apply to:
· Dishwashers, clothes washers, air conditioners, ceiling fans, fluorescent light bulbs, dehumidifiers, programmable thermostats, refrigerators, doors and windows that have the ENERGY STAR label and a purchase price of $1,500 or less.
· Bathroom sink faucets, high-efficiency toilets and urinals, showerheads, faucet accessories (such as aerators), and weather- or sensor-based irrigation controllers that have the WaterSense label and a purchase price of $1,500 or less.
The state and local sales tax exemption will not apply to items purchased for trade or business use, or items rented or leased.
“I encourage everyone to play their part in maintaining our environment by participating in the tax-free holiday to save money and, ultimately, conserve Georgia’s resources,” Deal said in a press release.
The sales tax-free holiday was reinstated under the Georgia Jobs and Family Tax Reform Plan.
