NC shoppers get final sales tax break
Posted October 31, 2013
The Energy Star Sales Tax Holiday Nov. 1 through 3 offers North Carolina shoppers their last chance at tax-free shopping. Legislators eliminated the annual, back-to-school and other sales tax holidays in an effort to boost state revenue.
The November event is targeted to consumers looking to replace an outdated appliance with one that is more energy efficient. They pay no sales tax on clothes washers, freezers, refrigerators, central air conditioners, room air conditioners, air-source heat pumps, ceiling fans, dehumidifiers and programmable thermostats that bear the Energy Star label.
The holiday begins Friday at 12 a.m. and ends at 11:59 p.m. Sunday.
