Virginia Holds Tax Holiday On Energy-Efficient Products

October 9, 2009

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia is holding its third annual tax
holiday on energy-efficient products.

From Friday through Monday, residential consumers can save money
by buying sales-tax exempt heat pumps, dishwashers, washing
machines, insulation, toilets and other products priced at $2,500
or less that are certified as being energy efficient with the
Energy Star and WaterSense designations.

On top of that, the state also has a first-come, first-serve
rebate program to encourage residential and commercial customers to
buy energy-saving products. The Virginia Energy Efficiency
Appliance Rebate program will use $15 million of federal stimulus
funds to give back 20 percent of qualifying purchases, up to $2,000
for homeowners and up to $4,000 for commercial buyers.
