Alabama announces Back To School sales tax holiday
Alabama’s ninth annual Back to School Sales Tax Holiday will be held Friday, Aug. 1, through Sunday, Aug. 3, 2014.
To allow retailers sufficient time to prepare for the annual Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday, local governments should notify the Alabama Department of Revenue (ADOR) by July 1, 2014, of their decisions regarding their participation in this year’s sales tax holiday.
A provision in the Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday law allows counties and municipalities to join the state by removing their own local sales and use taxes from the same items during the same weekend. Covered items include:
• clothing costs up to $100 per item;
• computers, software and computer supplies costing up to $750 per item;
• school supplies and textbooks up to $50 per item; and
• other books up to $30 each.
To see which local governments are participating, as well as to get more detailed information about the Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday, visit ADOR’s website.
Comments will be approved before showing up.
