WASHINGTON - If you've been putting off buying a new clothes washer or refrigerator, this may be the weekend to buy. There is no tax on energy-efficient appliances in Maryland.
Through Feb. 20, you'll get the 6 percent tax break as part of the annual Shop Maryland Energy weekend.
One weekend every February Maryland exempts its sales tax on the following Energy Star products:
- Air conditioners
- Clothes washers
- Heat pumps
- Solar water heaters (tax-exempt at all times now)
- Programmable thermostats
- Compact fluorescent light bulbs
