West Virginiaâ€™s Final Energy Star Sales Tax Holiday Ends This Month
CHARLESTON, W.VA.-Gov. Joe Manchin today reminded West Virginians that thereâ€™s only one month left to take advantage of the stateâ€™s third and final ENERGY STARÂ® Sales Tax Holiday.
During the holiday, which wraps up Nov. 30, West Virginians do not pay sales and use tax on qualified ENERGY STARÂ® products valued at $5,000 or less. Tangible personal property for use in a trade or business is not subject to this Sales Tax Holiday.
â€œI am so pleased that weâ€™ve been able to offer this sales tax holiday for three years now,â€ Gov. Manchin said. â€œI encourage all West Virginians to take stock of what their home may need. From a small item to a large home improvement need, do your research and see what ENERGY STARÂ® option may be available and take advantage of it before the end of the month.â€
In addition to the ENERGY STARÂ® Sales Tax Holiday, the West Virginia Appliance Rebate Program still has rebates available for dishwashers, clothes washers and refrigerators. Consumers in the market for these appliances not only will benefit from the tax holiday, but from the rebate program as well.
All West Virginia retailers of ENERGY STARÂ® qualified products are participating in the three month long Sales Tax Holiday. West Virginia retailers, who sell ENERGY STARÂ® qualified products, have been asked to display a sign in the storeâ€™s windows, on the door, or in the aisles, noting their participation.
Purchases qualify for the sales and use tax holiday if the purchase is for a product that:
* Has earned the ENERGY STARÂ® label.
* Costs $5,000 or less.
* Is for noncommercial home or personal use.
