Save on Energy Star appliances during Earth Week

If all this extra time at home has worn out an essential appliance, take advantage of the Missouri Show-Me Green Sales Tax Holiday and pay no sales tax 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
  • Dishwashers
  • Freezers
  • Furnaces
  • Heat pumps
  • Refrigerators
  • 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, Liberty, 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.
