Starting today and going through Sunday, you can purchase new energy efficient appliances without paying sales tax in Georgia. 

The sales tax holiday begins on Thursday, October 2, 2008 and runs through Sunday, October 5, 2008.

During this time Georgians will not have to pay state or local sales taxes on the purchase of energyefficient or water efficient products that cost $1,500 or less per item. This is the first year the tax holiday has been expanded to include WaterSense labeled products.
