Virginia ENERGY STAR Sales Tax Holiday Set for October 10-13

The City of Alexandria invites residents to take advantage of the second annual ENERGY STAR Sales Tax Holiday, scheduled for October 10-13. During the four-day sales tax holiday, Virginians will be exempt from paying the state and local sales tax (amounting to a savings of approximately 5%) on qualified products costing $2,500 or less. This year, in addition to ENERGY STAR products, Virginians can also benefit from savings on water-efficient products marketed with the EPA’s WaterSense label. Qualified ENERGY STAR and WaterSense products include the following:

• Compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs)
• Ceiling fans
• Clothes washers
• Dehumidifiers
• Dishwashers
• Programmable thermostats
• Refrigerators
• Air conditioners
• High-efficiency toilets
• Bathroom sink faucets

For more information about the sales tax holiday or the Eco-City Alexandria Initiative, please call the City’s Department of Transportation and Environmental Services at 703.838.4334.
