DOTHAN, AL-- Alabama and Florida families got to keep a little extra cash in their pocket this weekend.
During the sales tax-free holiday, all clothing items and shoes under $100, as well as personal computers $750 and under, are tax exempt.
Some shoppers waited until this weekend to make their big purchases. They said not having to pay taxes definitely gives them incentive.
"Well if you're going to spend about four hundred dollars and get hit fifty dollars in tax, you might as well do it during tax free weekend," Stefan Prime said.
The tax-free weekend continues until Sunday night at 11:59 p.m. Next weekend is Georgia's chance to purchase without paying taxes.
