  • Mar 20, 2012 | Susan McLain

Need a fridge? Dishwasher? Hot water heater? Well, if you live in Missouri, WAIT! Missouri has declared April 19-25, 2012 as the “…fourth annual Show-Me Green Sales Tax Holiday, said Alana M. Barragan-Scott, director of the Missouri Department of Revenue.”

Purchase a new Energy Star® qualified appliance and you will “…save a minimum of 4.225 percent” off your purchase. In addition to saving on the state sales tax, many local areas have opted to participate and waive the local sales tax.  All total, “[e]leven counties, 47 cities and 16 special districts have opted to participate in the holiday.”
