Missouri knows how to celebrate Earth Day, April 22. It's smack-dab in the middle of the state's annual Show-Me Green Sales Tax Holiday.
The holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, April 19, and runs until midnight on Friday, April 25.
During those seven days, Missouri shoppers won't have to pay the state's 4.225 percent sales tax on at least a portion of certain Energy Star new appliances. The qualifying energy-efficient products include:
- Clothes washers
- Water heaters
- Air conditioners
- Heat pumps
Up to $1,500 on each eligible appliance is exempt from sales tax.
Cities etc. tax-free, too: In addition to the state sales tax exemption, some local tax jurisdictions also will participate in the sales tax holiday.
