Energy Star Appliance Tax Free Weekend

November 4, 2010 at 11:39 pm Leave a comment

This Friday 11/5 through Sunday 11/7 will be the third annual North Carolina Energy Star Qualified Products Sales Tax Holiday.  Certain Energy Star qualified appliances purchased during this period will be exempt from the usual sales and use tax (7.75% in Durham County).  Here is an all-inclusive list of the Energy Star appliances covered by the exemption:

  • Clothes washers
  • Freezers and refrigerators
  • Central air conditioners and room air conditioners
  • Air-source heat pumps and geothermal heat pumps
  • Ceiling fans
  • Dehumidifiers
  • Programmable thermostats

Energy Star appliances use up to 50% less energy and water to run than standard appliances.  So, if you are in the market for a new appliance, this weekend is the time to act!  Also, don’t forget that some of the appliances covered by this tax-free weekend may qualify for additional tax incentives that will run out at the end of the year.
