Sales-Tax Holiday Kicks Off Soon

Virginia’s sales-tax holiday on energy-efficient products begins Friday. You can save money by buying sales-tax exempt heat pumps, dishwashers, washing machines, insulation, toilets and other products during the sales-tax holiday, which will last until October 14. Products exempt from the sales tax must cost $2500 or less. They also must be certified as being energy efficient with Energy Star and WaterSense designations. A complete list of tax-exempt items can be found at www.tax.virginia.gov.
