Disaster Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday in Alabama This Weekend

Those of us in Alabama can save money on the purchase of disaster preparedness items this weekend. According to AlabamaRetail.com

Alabama’s sixth severe weather preparedness sales tax holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. Friday, Feb. 24, 2017, and ends at midnight, Sunday, Feb. 26, 2017, allowing Alabama shoppers to stock up tax free on common supplies costing less than $60 that every home and business needs to prepare for a natural disaster or even a general emergency. Generators costing $1,000 or less also can be purchased free of the state’s four-percent sales tax during the three-day tax holiday. Alabama’s local governments may also choose to waive their sales taxes on the covered items.
