It will be like “Christmas in summer” for shoppers taking advantage of the sales tax holiday from 12:01 a.m. Friday, July 15, through midnight Sunday, July 17.
With a national inflation rate of 9%, Alabama parents can take advantage of the savings associated with the state’s back-to-school sales tax holiday. This weekend, the state is waiving its 4% sales tax on school-related supplies and clothing. More than 300 cities and counties throughout Alabama will also waive their local taxes. In some areas the savings reach 10%, according to the Alabama Retail Association. Many stores will stay open later this weekend to allow patrons additional time to shop.
