You can stock up on back-to-school supplies and save some money! Alabama’s Sales Tax Holiday is coming up this weekend. This is the first year the tax holiday will happen in July.
The sales tax holiday for school-related items begins at 12:01 a.m. Friday, July 21, 2017, and ends at midnight Sunday July 23, 2017, giving shoppers the opportunity to purchase certain school supplies, computers, books and clothing free of the state’s four percent sales or use tax. Many cities and counties also waive their local taxes as well.
Alabama lawmakers moved the tax holiday to the third weekend in July to ensure it always falls before the first day of school.
Here are the items that qualify as tax exempt:
Certain school supplies ($50 or less per item)
Computer and tablets ($750 or less per item)
Books ($30 or less per book)
Clothing ($100 of less per article of clothing)
Also, you don’t necessarily have to be buying “school supplies” to take advantage of the tax savings. Maybe you need a new dress or dress shirt for a summer event – as long as it’s less than $100, you can purchase it tax-free. Also, DIAPERS qualify as tax-free because they are considered “apparel”, so that’s a popular item during this weekend.
