Georgia Sales Tax Holiday
| Print |
September 30-October 2, 2016
Fall is once again a great time to commit to saving water and Georgia is offering a Sales Tax Holiday for water saving products. WaterSense labeled products purchased during this time frame will be exempt from state and local sales taxes.
WaterSense labeled toilets, showerheads, faucets, irrigation controllers and other products use at least 20 percent less water, and perform as well as or better than conventional models. ¬† Independent, third parties certify that WaterSense-labeled products meet U.S. E.P.A. criteria for water efficiency. ¬†
Replacing a standard showerhead with a WaterSense labeled one can save thousands of gallons of water a year. ¬† Replacing an old toilet with a water-efficient one will save more than two gallons a flush. Besides saving money on the sales tax, residents who purchase a WaterSense labeled toilet may qualify for a rebate. Details about which utilities offer rebates, either directly or through the Metro Water District are available on the District's website.
