If you want to save money, increase energy efficiency and make your living space more attractive, a fireplace insert is a perfect solution. Traditional open fireplaces are inefficient. An insert is more efficient than a traditional open fireplace because it allows the fire to burn hotter. They also prevent heat from going up the chimney like in an open fireplace. The heat is instead forced out into your home, making it more comfortable.

Additionally, a new fireplace insert is an easy and fairly inexpensive way to update the look of your home. You can add a focal point to your room with the addition of a beautifully crafted stove or fireplace insert and don’t pay any sales tax.

Massachusetts winters are cold. Everyone wants a welcoming fire at home. Why not burn a fire that is more efficient and cost effective while adding beauty?

Many Hearthstone stoves and inserts have efficiency ratings over 80%. Contact us The Fireplace Shop and Grill Center at West Sport in Sudbury, MA.

Massachusetts Tax-Free Weekend is Set For August 17-18

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, July 02, 2019

Massachusetts’ annual sales tax holiday will be held the weekend of Aug. 17-18, 2019.

Both the House and the Senate agreed on the date in resolutions passed during sparsely attended informal legislative sessions on Thursday.

This is the first year that Massachusetts retailers have been assured that the sales tax holiday weekend will occur, after the so-called Grand Bargain signed by Gov. Charlie Baker in 2018 made the annual tax holiday permanent.

In the past, lawmakers have decided each summer whether to hold a sales tax holiday, based on the condition of state revenues.

Retailers say the sales tax holiday boosts sales during a slow time of summer.

Under the new law, lawmakers have until June 15 to set the dates of the annual holiday, or the Department of Revenue will do it.

The sales tax break will apply to purchases under $2,500. It will exclude purchases of tobacco, marijuana, alcohol, cars, motorboats, telecommunications, gas, steam and electricity.

Shoppers save approximately $20 million a year during the two-day waiver of the state’s 6.25% sales tax.
