While the legislators battle it out over taxes in Annapolis, Marylanders will get a brief respite.

From Feb. 18 through the 20th, Marylanders buying certain Energy Star products can avoid paying the 6 percent state sales tax.

Items that qualify for the tax holiday include air conditioners, clothes dryers and washers, furnaces, refrigerators, programmable thermostats. For a full list, check out the comptroller’s website.

This three-day tax holiday on energy products takes place annually on the weekend of the third Monday in February.

During the second week in August, shoppers get a tax holiday on apparel and shoes selling for up to $100.
