During the week of April 19-25, Jackson County, Mo. residents can help save money, conserve energy and stimulate the economy.
During this week, ENERGY STAR®-qualified appliances purchased within Jackson County will be exempt from state, county and city sales tax. Purchases made in the portions of Kansas City, Mo., located in Clay, Platte, and Cass counties will also be exempt.
(*According to the Energy Star Website, trash compactors, conventional ovens, ranges and stoves do not receive an energy star rating. Therefore, although the statute anticipates that someday they may receive the energy star rating, tax will continue to apply to purchases of these items during the upcoming Show-Me Green Sales Tax Holiday.)
