Georgians can take steps to save energy and water by participating in Georgia’s tax-free holiday this weekend, October 2-5, 2008. Thanks to legislation passed in 2008 by the Georgia General Assembly, this tax-free holiday exempts purchases of specific water- and energy-efficient products from state and local sales and use taxes. The exemptions are limited to products with a purchase price of $1,500 or less that have been designated as meeting the requirements of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense program and the U.S. Department of Energy’s ENERGYSTAR program. Tax exemptions are available for items such as air conditioners, refrigerators, dishwashers, ceiling fans, fluorescent light bulbs, programmable thermostats, WaterSense fixtures and faucets, and high-efficiency toilets.
