This weekend Maryland consumers who buy qualifying Energy Star products will get a break from the state's 6 percent sales tax.

Beginning Saturday and continuing through Monday, shoppers who purchase air conditioners, refrigerators, washers and dryers, boilers, dehumidifiers, compact fluorescent light bulbs and other qualifying Energy Star products will get the tax break, says Fox5DC.

A complete list of ENERGY STAR items may be found at www.energystar.gov.

The annual Shop Maryland Energy weekend is now in its fifth year.

I think we have 2 tax free holidays this year. This one and the one in August (3rd thru 9th). Of course I needed to replace my hot water heater last month so I miss out on this one. lol

well they don't advertise it very good. Did anyone even know about this?

You are right. I heard from a friend on Saturday. I also saw a TV ad, but still, not enough time to take advantage of it.
