The 2012 ENERGY STAR sales tax holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. (after midnight) on Saturday, May 26, and ends at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, May 28 (Memorial Day).
The products qualifying for the exemption are:
Air conditioners priced at $6,000 or less
Refrigerators priced at $2,000 or less
Incandescent and fluorescent light bulbs
* Because most dryers use similar amounts of energy, ENERGY STAR does not label clothes dryers.
** ENERGY STAR specification of programmable thermostats was suspended on December 31, 2009; however, any existing stock of ENERGY STAR labeled programmable thermostats offered for sale by retailers is still eligible for the exemption.
