Those of us in Alabama can save money on the purchase of disaster preparedness items this weekend. According to AlabamaRetail.comhttps://alabamaretail.org/resources/salestaxholidays/severe-weather-preparedness/:
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.
