Dothan Tax Free Day

Alabama lawmakers have approved a state-wide sales tax holiday. Now Dothan officials must decide whether they want to participate.

If Dothan officials choose the tax-free holiday the city stands to loose between $70,000 and $300,000

However state and county officials have opted to waive a total of five percent in sales tax, while the city could waive three percent.

“It will be a savings to the citizens of Dothan and will cost the city some money. But the citizen's are the city,” mayor Pat Thomas.

There is a clause in the state bill allowing cities and counties to determine if they'll implement tax-free day.

It’s usually three days set aside in August.
