Georgia to offer sales tax holiday for WaterSense products


September 27, 2012
Oct. 5-7 is a good time to commit to saving water in Georgia. That's because purchases of WaterSense-labeled products 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 can save more than two gallons a flush. Besides saving money on the sales tax, Forsyth County residents who purchase a WaterSense-labeled toilet may qualify for a rebate.

The sales tax holiday on WaterSense-labeled products will start Friday, Oct. 5 at 12:01 a.m. and will continue through the weekend until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 7. WaterSense-labeled products with a sales price of $1,500 or less purchased for noncommercial home or personal use during the sales tax holiday will be Georgia state and local sales tax-free.

WaterSense is a partnership program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that seeks to protect the future of our nation's water supply by offering people a simple way to use less water with water-efficient products, new homes and services.
