150081
Adopting the Show Me Green Sales Tax Holiday for City sales taxes on Energy Star certified new appliances from April 19 through April 25, 2015 and directing the City Clerk to provide a certified copy of this ordinance to the Missouri Department of Revenue as notice of the City's election to participate in the sales tax holiday.


FINANCE, GOVERNANCE & ETHICS COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
The Office of Environmental Quality testified that reducing energy consumption is one of the most significant ways to achieve the goals of Kansas City's climate protection plan. Use of Energy Star appliances not only reduces energy use and GHG emissions, they save money on our utility bills. Eliminating sales tax on Energy Star appliances during the week-long Show Me Green Sales Tax Holiday allows Kansas City residents to save money on their purchase of these energy-saving devices. Hopefully, this will also help the local economy by promoting additional purchases of Energy Star applicances during the sales tax holiday period.
