Missouri's Show-Me Green Sales Tax Holiday runs April 19-25

Missouri knows how to celebrate Earth Day, April 22. It's smack-dab in the middle of the state's annual Show-Me Green Sales Tax Holiday.

The holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, April 19, and runs until midnight on Friday, April 25.

During those seven days, Missouri shoppers won't have to pay the state's 4.225 percent sales tax on at least a portion of certain Energy Star new appliances. The qualifying energy-efficient products include:

  • Clothes washers Energy Star logo
  • Water heaters
  • Dishwashers
  • Air conditioners
  • Furnaces
  • Refrigerators
  • Freezers 
  • Heat pumps

Up to $1,500 on each eligible appliance is exempt from sales tax.

Cities etc. tax-free, too: In addition to the state sales tax exemption, some local tax jurisdictions also will participate in the sales tax holiday.

A dozen counties, 53 cities and 18 special taxing districts will forgo collection of their sales taxes for the holiday week.
