Georgia Sales Tax Holiday, October 2 – 4
- Oct 2, 2015 | Gail Cole
The Georgia energy and water efficient products sales tax holiday is under way, having started at 12:01 a.m. Friday, October 2, 2015. It concludes at midnight Sunday, October 4.
This tax-free period was created to encourage Georgians to replace old, inefficient household products with those that are more energy efficient. The sales tax holiday only applies to products purchased for personal use, not those purchased for use in a trade or business. Read on for a list of tax-exempt products.
