Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday

Alabama Sales Tax HolidayAlabama’s 12th annual sales tax holiday for school-related items begins at 12:01 a.m. Friday, Aug. 4, 2017, and ends at midnight Sunday Aug. 6, 2017, giving shoppers the opportunity to purchase certain school supplies, computers, books and clothing free of the state’s four percent sales or use tax. Cities and counties must notify the state that they will participate in the 2017 holiday in July. The Alabama Legislature has voted to move the sales tax holiday to July. The legislation awaits the governor’s signature to become law. This page will be updated when that occurs.

The Alabama Retail Association has compiled a toolkit for retailers with all the information you will need to prepare for and promote the sales tax holiday in your store. Download the Alabama Sales Tax Holiday Retailer’s Toolkit by entering your information below:
