Major appliance purchases exempt from sales tax during Show-Me Green Tax Holiday
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: April 13, 2016
During the week of April 19-25, Kansas City, Mo. residents can help save money, conserve energy and stimulate the economy by participating in Missouri’s Show-Me Green Sales Tax Holiday!
During this week, ENERGY STAR®-qualified appliances purchased within Kansas City, Mo., located in Jackson County will be exempt from state and city sales tax. In addition, purchases made in the portions of Kansas City, Mo., located in Clay, Platte, Jackson and Cass counties will be exempt from city, state and county sales tax.
The Show-Me Green Sales Tax Holiday exempts state sales tax on retail sales of qualifying energy star certified new appliances, up to one thousand five hundred dollars per appliance, during a seven-day period beginning at 12:01 a.m. on April nineteenth and ending at midnight on April twenty-fifth.
The following energy star certified appliances qualify for the holiday:
- Clothes washers
- Clothes dryers
- Water heaters
- Trash compactors*
- Conventional ovens*
- Air conditioners
- 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.)
