The 9th annual sales tax holiday is this weekend, so this would be a good time to stock up on “unmentionables”, outerwear and footwear.
From the state revenue department’s website –
Beginning at 12:01 a.m. (CST) on Friday August 1, 2014, and ending at twelve midnight on Sunday August 3, 2014, 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.

The Alabama Retail Association notes “Alabama retailers are required to participate in the state’s sales tax holidays and cannot charge any waived sales taxes on the items that are legally tax-exempt during the two tax holidays.”
