REMINDER: Energy Star Tax-Free Weekend

This is the weekend to buy if you want to save some money on a new washer, fridge or other big appliance. It’s a tax free weekend for items that are Energy Star or Water Sense labeled for efficiency and cost less than 25-hundred dollars. Joel Davison, spokesman for the state tax department says that even if you don’t need appliances or plumbing items, CFL light bulbs are included in the tax-free offer. The holiday runs today through midnight Monday.
