Tax free spree ahead for Etowah County

By Lindsay Seagraves/News Editor

Etowah and other Alabama counties will get one shopping spree weekend beginning at 12:01 a.m. on Aug. 1 and lasting until midnight on Aug. 3.

Each first Friday in August, the Sales Tax Holiday is meant to coincide with the back to school needs of school-aged children in Alabama.

This year tax exemption will apply to clothing and school-related items. 

According to the Alabama Department of Revenue, items eligible for tax exemption include all human-wearable apparel suitable for general use. This includes:

Clothing items under $100 such as belts, shirts, pants, diapers, boots and jackets;  computers and computer equipment under $750 such as laptop computers, desktop computers and printers and printer supplies; school supplies under $50 such as binders, calculators and crayons; and books under $30 published in a volume with an ISBN number. 

Magazines and newspapers do not apply.

Retailers are required to participate in the tax free weekend and may not charge tax on items that are legally tax-exempt during the Sales Tax Holiday.
