Alabama Sales Tax Holiday Continues

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama's fourth annual sales tax holiday continues as shoppers across the state pack mall parking lots and store checkout lines.

The holiday gives shoppers the opportunity to purchase certain school supplies, computers and clothing free of the state's four percent sales or use tax. It ends at midnight Sunday.

Gov. Bob Riley has predicted that Alabama's sales tax holiday will give retailers a boost during the recession.

The state is waiving its 4 percent sales tax on many clothing and school purchases. More than 253 cities and counties are lifting their local sales taxes.
