Alabama’s annual back-to-school tax- free weekend is slated to begin at midnight. The savings will run until midnight on Sunday. Although the state’s 4 percent sales tax is waived, local tax may still be included in certain areas.
The tax exemption is focused around back to school items, but everyone can partake.
Melissa Warnke is the communication manager for the Alabama Retail Association. She advises families to plan for the tax-free weekend.
