September 30, 2013
WaterSense and ENERGY STAR logos

The energy efficient sales tax holiday will occur this weekend. On Friday, October 4 through Sunday, October 6, items less than $1,500 with either an ENERGY STAR or WaterSense logo will be exempt of sales tax. This holiday occurs in order to save Georgians money, but to also encourage people to be energy efficient with their household appliances.

Some of the exempt items include:

  • Air conditioners
  • Washing machines
  • Dishwashers
  • Refrigerators
  • Sink faucets
  • High-efficiency toilets
  • Showerheads

For a complete list of exempt items, look at the Georgia Environmental Finance Authority’s Energy Initiatives.
