MONTGOMERY-Alabama parents plan to take advantage of the savings associated with Alabama’s back-to-school sales tax holiday, but the tax-free weekend gives everyone a reason to shop.

Alabama’s 19th annual sales tax holiday for school-related items is July 19-21. This marks the eighth time the annual tax holiday will take place on the third full weekend of July.

From 12:01 a.m. Friday, July 19, until midnight, Sunday, July 21, the state waives its 4% 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%. Check the 2024 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.

Reason for Everyone to Shop
Although the sales tax holiday targets back-to-school shoppers, any consumer can benefit from the savings offered during the weekend. A wide range of items are exempt during the holiday, so there is a reason for everyone to shop.
