Alabama’s Back to School Tax Free Shopping Weekend August 2-4

Tax Free Back to School Shopping will be August 2-4, 2012.  What does this mean?

Beginning at 12:01 a.m. (CST) on Friday August 2, 2013, and ending at twelve midnight on Sunday August 4, 2013, Alabama will hold its eighth annual sales tax holiday giving shoppers the opportunity to purchase certain school supplies, computers, and clothing free of state sales or use tax.  Local sales and use tax may apply – see list of participating cities and counties.

Retailers in the state are required to not charge state tax on purchases during this weekend.  Also, counties and cities themselves may choose to waive local taxes also.  Here are the local areas participating in the waiving of additional local taxes (some with restrictions listed):









Mountain Brook


Oxford – ONLY applies to Oxford’s 4% sales and use tax.  Oxford DOES NOT GRANT a holiday for the remaining 1% levied for education.

Pell City

St. Clair County – ONLY applies to St. Clair County’s 1% sales and use tax. St. Clair County DOES NOT GRANT a holiday for the remaining 1% levied for education.


Talladega/ Talladega County


These locations are NOT waiving local taxes: Jefferson County (with exception of specific cities that will be participating), Argo, Ashville and Ragland

As of the publishing of the list Margaret, Moody and Steele had not stated whether they were participating or not.

Looks like the best places to shop will be Pell City, Springville and Odenville since they will be waiving city taxes and are within St. Clair County (which is waiving all but 1%).  If you shop in Leeds or Trussville you will still pay Jefferson County Taxes.

Items that will be exempt:

Clothing – less than $100 per item restriction (some exclusions apply)

School Supplies – less than $50 per item restriction
includes but not limited too: backpacks, binders, pens, pencils, crayons, markers, paper, calculators, etc.

Books – less than $30 per item restriction (some exclusions apply)

Also included are computers and certain accessories and software.

See the full list here.
