Shop Maryland Energy Weekend, Feb. 17-19

‘Shop Maryland Energy Weekend’ from Feb. 17-19 Will Save Consumers Money on Select Energy-Efficient Appliances

The “2024 Shop Maryland Energy Weekend” from Feb. 17-19 will save consumers money on select energy-efficient appliances. During the annual three-day period, Maryland’s sales and use tax does not apply to the sale of solar water heaters and certain Energy Star products.

Among the items that will be free of Maryland sales tax during the weekend are solar water heaters. Other qualifying Energy Star products could include the following: air conditioners, clothes washers, clothes dryers, furnaces, heat pumps, standard size refrigerators, compact fluorescent light bulbs, dehumidifiers, boilers or programmable thermostats.

When shopping for a qualifying Energy Star product, look for the Energy Star label. The Energy Star logo is on all qualified products that meet specific standards for energy efficiency. However, only the specific items listed qualify for the savings. Search for Energy Star products by visiting www.energystar.gov.

Tax savings will apply whether the item is new or used. The sales and use tax exemption applies to qualifying purchases made in-person or online, provided that the seller has acted to immediately fill the order and the buyer has paid for the product during the Shop Maryland Energy Weekend. Transactions for back-ordered products where the buyer is not billed until the product ships do not qualify for the exemption.

More information about the tax-free weekend is available at  https://www.marylandtaxes.gov/divisions/comp/Shop_Maryland_Energy/Shop_Maryland_Energy_FAQs.pdf
