Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- Time is running out for West Virginia consumers to take advantage of a tax break on purchases of energy-saving home appliances and building materials.
Gov. Joe Manchin says the state's third and final energy star sales tax holiday will end Nov. 30. The three-month program began in September. It was initially offered in 2008.
Consumers who buy energy-saving home appliances and building materials don't have to pay the state's 6 percent sales tax. The tax break applies to all noncommercial purchases of energy star products worth up to $5,000.
Rebates are still available from a different program, the West Virginia appliance rebate program, for dishwaters, clothes washers and refrigerators.
