Severe Weather Preparedness

Tax HolidayAlabama’s fourth severe weather preparedness sales tax holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. Friday, Feb. 26, 2016, and ends at midnight, Sunday, Feb. 28, 2016, 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 have until Jan. 26, 2016, to notify the Alabama Department of Revenue if they will also waive their sales taxes on the covered items.
