Last Day for Sales Tax Holiday on Energy Efficient Appliances

Feb 20, 2012



     ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - It's the last day to take advantage of a tax holiday in Maryland for energy-efficient appliances.

     Marylanders who buy new, energy-efficient appliances through Monday will not have to pay the state's six percent sales tax on the items.

     Eligible products include air conditioners, washing machines, furnaces and refrigerators. Energy-efficient compact fluorescent light bulbs, dehumidifiers and programmable thermostats are also eligible.

     The tax-free weekend is the result of legislation passed in 2007 by the Maryland General Assembly.
