Alabama goes tax-free for severe weather preparedness

By  | 

Preparing for severe weather comes at a bargain this weekend in Alabama.


The 6th annual Severe Weather Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday kicked off Friday morning and lasts through midnight Sunday.

Shoppers across Alabama can buy tools to keep them ahead of the storm, and before bad weather strikes.

Items like batteries, flashlights, first-aid kits, and weather radios will be free of state sales and use tax.
"Hey, any time you can get a little money off is a good deal!” says Coffee County EMA Deputy Director, James D. Brown. “And so we recommend that everyone go out and get what you need and get their kits together."

The 4Warn Storm Team will be programming weather radios at Walgreens in Enterprise next Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

March first marks the 10th anniversary of the deadly Enterprise tornado.
