Tax Free Holiday Underway

Lynchburg, VA - Now might a good time to buy that new washer or fridge. It's the third tax-free holiday this year in the Commonwealth.

This one is all about savings on EnergyStar and WaterSense products. At Lowe's in Madison Heights, that includes things like front and top load washers.

You can also get fridges, fans, LED lights and thermostats free of taxes.

"The prices are on sale so you save there but once you get it home, you're also going to be saving on that dreaded utility bill, which we all know in the winter time is going to be going up so it's kind of like putting us on an equal playing ground; we can keep our money we've worked hard to get," said Stuart Jones, Sales Specialist in the Appliance Dept.

The items must be $2,500 or less to qualify for the tax-free holiday. The holiday runs through Monday.
