No More State Sales Tax Holidays After This Weekend

RALEIGH (AP) - What may be North Carolina's final sales tax holiday time for quite some time has started.

The state's annual weekend exempting sales taxes from purchases of certain energy efficient home appliances began at midnight Thursday and runs through late Sunday night.

The holiday applies to Energy Star-labeled clothes washers, refrigerators and freezers, air conditioners, ceiling fans and programmable thermostats and other products. Business purchases don't qualify.

The General Assembly passed a tax overhaul law this year that repealed the sales tax weekends on Energy Star appliances and the one held every August for clothing, computers and school supplies and sports equipment. The holidays won't occur in 2014 and beyond.
