Missouri consumers are being offered a temporary break on the state sales tax on energy-efficient appliances.

The Revenue Department says its fifth annual Show-Me Green Sales Tax Holiday runs through Thursday of this week. The event lifts the 4.2 percent state sales tax on dishwashers, furnaces, air conditioners and other appliances that carry the Energy Star label.

The agency says 11 counties, 51 cities and 18 special taxing districts are also taking part, meaning buyers will be spared the local sales taxes as well.
