Customers can save money on select Energy Star-rated appliances during the state’s Energy Star sales tax holiday that begins Friday, Nov. 1, and runs through Sunday, Nov. 3. 

During the holiday, certain Energy Star-qualified products that meet guidelines set by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy are exempt from sales and use taxes. Qualified products feature the distinctive Energy Star label. 

Sales or purchases of products exempt during the holiday include Energy Star-qualified clothes washers, freezers, refrigerators, central air conditioners, room air conditioners, air-source heat pumps, ceiling fans, dehumidifiers and programmable thermostats. There is no price floor or price ceiling for products to qualify. Rentals of Energy Star-qualified products are not exempt from sales taxes during the holiday.
