As holidays go, the Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday may not be on par with the likes of Christmas, Halloween, or even Presidents Day (when else can you save 50% on a mattress?). But for shoppers with students in the family, the third weekend in July can be a popular one thanks to the Alabama Department of Revenue. Parents and students save on sales tax on items like clothing, computers, supplies, and more. For 2019, Alabama's Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday is July 19-21.
Did you know that Alabama has the 8th highest sales tax in the US? Thus, the chance to skip the sales tax in preparation for the new school year should not be overlooked. Parents can save an average of $50 per kid! On top of that, many stores have additional sales and deals for even more savings.
For Alabama's sales tax holiday, parents could be in line for a tax-smart year. As Alabama income taxes increased for many taxpayers, lining up for sales tax savings is a savvy way to reduce taxes.
