State Sales Tax Holiday on Preparedness Items - Weekend of July 6 - 8
The sales tax holiday for 2012 will begin at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, July 6. The holiday will continue through midnight on Sunday, July 8. By having the holiday in July of this year, retailers and municipalities were given time between the holiday’s legislative approval and the designated weekend to organize and prepare for participation. Final preparations will continue between now and the start of the holiday on July 6.
“Being prepared is the first step to a quick response to a natural disaster,” Governor Bentley said. “If people have the emergency supplies they need, that will go a long way toward helping them weather any storm.”
