Reminder: North Carolina's sales tax holiday on Energy Star appliances starts today and runs through the weekend.
If you've been thinking about purchasing new appliances for your home, you might want to wait a few weeks and save yourself some money.
The weekend of Nov. 2 through Nov. 4 is North Carolina's Energy Star sales tax holiday, the state's fifth annual.
Energy Star products that meet efficiency guidelines set by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy are exempt from sales and use taxes. Qualified products will have an Energy Star label, making them easier to identify.
Products that qualify for tax-free status include Energy Star clothes washers, freezers, refrigerators, central air conditioners, room air conditioners, air-source heat pumps, ceiling fans, dehumidifiers and programmable thermostats.
As long as you pay for the appliance and request immediate delivery you'll qualify for the savings. If the delivery is delayed by the seller, you'll still qualify.
