Vermont Sales and Use Tax Exemption:

Starting July 1, 2018, advanced wood heat boilers will qualify for a retail sales and use tax exemption.  The exemption is on qualifying equipment and directly associated equipment must meet the following requirements:  (A) installed as a primary central heating system; (B) rated as high-efficiency, meaning a higher heating value or gross calorific value of 85 percent or more; (C) containing at least one week fuel-storage, automated startup and shutdown, and fuel feed; and (D) meeting other efficiency and air emissions standards established by the Department of Environmental Conservation. On a typical residential sized boiler, this represents an esimated average savings of $900/boiler. This exemption sunsets in June 2023.
