North Carolina Issues Energy Tax Holiday

Reported first on Don't Mess With Taxes, NC will be holding another tax holiday in November (7-9), this time for energy-saving purchases.


In July 2008, North Carolina enacted legislation (H.B. 2436) establishing a "sales tax holiday" for certain Energy Star-certified products. Energy Star appliances sold between 12:01 a.m. on the first Friday of November and 11:59 p.m. on that Sunday qualify for the sales tax exemption.

The exemption is generally available for products that carry the Energy Star label and meet the energy-efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy, including:

Clothes washers
Freezers and refrigerators
Central air conditioners and room air conditioners
Air-source heat pumps and geothermal heat pumps
Ceiling fans
Programmable thermostats
