If it’s time to replace some household appliances, you can take advantage of the Missouri Show-Me Green Sales Tax Holiday and pay no sales taxes from April 19-25 on a qualifying Energy Star® appliance.
Since 2009, the sales tax holiday has been scheduled each year to promote energy efficiency during the week of Earth Day, April 22.
Energy Star® appliances that qualify include:
- Air conditioners
- Clothes dryers
- Clothes washers
- Heat pumps
- Water heaters
Many cities and counties across the state have opted into the tax-free exemption on purchases up to $1,500 per appliance during the seven-day period.
Locally, the participating cities include Belton, Gladstone, Kansas City, Lee’s Summit, Platte City and Raymore, and participating counties include Cass, Clay, Jackson and Platte. For a complete list of participating cities and counties, visit the Missouri Department of Revenue.
In order to qualify, the appliance must have an Energy Star® rating. Check the Energy Star® website for more information.
