If you live in North Carolina, you’ll want to know about the special tax-free weekend on Energy Star rated appliances. Beginning at 12:01 on Friday, November 6th, 2009, and ending on the 8th, you can purchase items tax-free in store or online, with some rules and regulations.
Qualifying purchases include:
- (Clothes) Washing machines
- Freezers and refrigerators
- Central air conditioners and room air conditioners
- Air-source heat pumps and geothermal heat pumps
- Ceiling fans
- Programmable thermostats
So if you’re in the market for something, this is the weekend to buy it. Rumors of “Cash for Clunkers: Appliances Edition” put that program in early 2010, but you probably know what I think of such offers. I’ll be picking up a new refrigerator, and basking in the energy savings on top of my tax-free purchase!
