Virginia Sales Tax Holiday August 7-9 Includes ENERGY STAR, WaterSense Products

This weekend — August 7-9, 2015 —  is a Virginia Sales Tax Holiday for ENERGY STAR and Water Sense products, along w back-to-school supplies and emergency preparedness materials. This is a great time for people to stock up on the products (or finally make that big purchase) that will save them energy, water and money.
In previous years, Virginia held three separate sales tax holidays. Legislation in the 2015 General Assembly combined them all, which means this weekend — August 7-9 — is the one opportunity to take advantage of no sales tax on qualifying: school supplies, clothing, footwear, hurricane and emergency preparedness items **and** ENERGY STAR and WaterSense products.
The energy- and water-saving category includes the following items with ENERGY STAR or WaterSense labels:
— Air Conditioners
— Dishwashers
— Ceiling Fans
— Light Bulbs
— Dehumidifiers
— Refrigerators
— Washing Machines/Clothes Washers
— Bathroom Sink Faucets
— Toilets
— Faucet Accessories
— Urinals
— Showerheads
— Landscape Irrigation Controllers
