It’s hard to believe that school will be back in session in just a matter of days! Luckily, there will be great shopping deals to take advantage of this weekend. Alabama will hold its 9th-annual sales tax holiday beginning at 12:01 a.m. Friday, August 1st and continuing until midnight Sunday, August 3rd. During this time, Alabama will not charge state sales tax on items intended for back-to-school use.
The following is a list of exempted items:
- Clothing – $100 or less per article
- Computers & Software – Single purchase with sales price of $750 or less
- School supplies, school art supplies, and instructional materials – Sales price of $50 or less per item
- Books – Sales price of $30 or less per book
Local taxes could still apply to purchases; for a list of participating and non-participating municipalities click HERE
