MONTGOMERY-With an almost 9% national inflation rate, Alabama parents should plan to take advantage of the savings associated with our state’s back-to-school sales tax holiday.

Alabama’s 17th annual back-to-school sales tax holiday is July 15-17. This marks the sixth time the annual tax holiday will take place during the third weekend of July.

From 12:01 a.m. Friday, July 15, until midnight, Sunday, July 17, the state waives its four percent sales tax on school-related supplies and clothing. More than 300 cities and counties throughout Alabama also waive their local taxes. In some areas, the savings reach 10 percent. Check the 2022 Participating Cities and Counties list to determine if your local communities are participating.

Exempt items include:

  • Clothing priced at $100 or less per article;
  • School supplies valued at $50 or less per item;
  • Books that cost $30 or less per book; and
  • Tablets, laptops, computers and printers with a selling price of $750 or less.
