ATLANTA (AP) – Those looking to purchase certain energy- and water-efficient appliances and products will enjoy a sales tax holiday this weekend in Georgia.
Officials with the state Department of Revenue say the sales tax holiday is limited to items that cost no more than $1,500 and include an Energy Star or Water Sense label.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (http://bit.ly/ZRPRnk) the tax holiday began Friday and runs through Sunday.
Products purchased for a business or trade use or those being rented or leased do not apply for the exemption.
Those energy-efficient products include air conditioners, ceiling fans, dishwashers, light bulbs among other items, while water-efficient products can include faucets, toilets and showerheads.
