The Show-Me Green Sales Tax Holiday exempts state sales tax on retail sales of qualifying new appliances, up to one thousand five hundred dollars per appliance, during a seven-day period beginning at 12:01 a.m. on April 19th and ending at midnight on April 25th.

The following energy star certified appliances qualify for the holiday:

  • Clothes Washers
  • Clothes Dryers
  • Water Heaters
  • Trash Compactors*
  • Dishwashers
  • Conventional Ovens*
  • Ranges*
  • Stoves*
  • Air Conditioners
  • Furnaces
  • Refrigerators
  • Freezers
  • Heat Pumps

(*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.)
