Virginia is offering a tax holiday for certain energy efficient products and appliances between Oct. 5 and Oct. 8.
Shoppers won't have to pay the usual 5 percent sales tax on Energy Star or WaterSense products and appliances of up to $2,500.
Energy Star labeled products include air conditioners, refrigerators, dishwashers, ceiling fans, and washing machines, as well as compact fluorescent light bulbs.
WaterSense labeled items include bathroom sink faucets, faucet accessories, toilets, showerheads, and landscape irrigation controllers.
The discount applies to used products and online purchases, as long as the company or store is in Virginia.
