FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: April 10, 2017
Anyone struggling to find just the right time to buy that new washer & dryer, upgraded refrigerator or some other energy-saving appliance may want to pencil in the week of April 19-25 as the perfect opportunity.
You see that’s the week that Kansas City, Missouri, residents can save money and stimulate the economy by participating in Missouri’s Show-Me Green Sales Tax Holiday!
ENERGY STAR®-qualified appliances purchased during this week within KCMO, located in Jackson County, are exempt from state and city sales tax. In addition, purchases made in the portions of Kansas City, 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 $1,500 per appliance, during a seven-day period beginning at 12:01 a.m. on April 19 and ending at midnight on April 25.
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 some day 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.)
