Alabama's sales tax holiday set for August 7-9

Alabama is getting ready for its fourth annual sales tax holiday on Aug. 7-9

The state government is waiving its 4 percent sales tax on back-to-school items purchased between 12:01 a.m. Friday, Aug. 7
and midnight Sunday, Aug. 9.

The state Revenue Department reports that many cities and
counties are also waving their local sales taxes for the weekend.

The state's most populous county, Jefferson County, is not
participating this year.

County officials say the anticipated $200,000 in sales taxes that will be collected that weekend will be enough to save seven jobs in the financially troubled county.

The sales tax holiday covers clothing items costing $100 or
less, computer equipment costing $750 or less, school supplies
costing $50 or less, and books costing $30 or less.
