Did you know that Alabama has a statewide tax holiday the last weekend of February? Well we do and it's to get us prepared for severe weather that typically plagues the state in the spring.
Alabama’s 10th severe weather preparedness sales tax holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. Friday, Feb. 26, 2021, and ends at midnight, Sunday, Feb. 28, 2021, allowing Alabama shoppers to stock up tax free on common supplies costing less than $60 that every home and business needs to prepare for a natural disaster or even a general emergency. Generators costing $1,000 or less also can be purchased free of the state’s four-percent sales tax during the three-day tax holiday. Alabama’s local governments wishing to add their tax savings to the holiday may do so by adopting a resolution or ordinance 30 days prior to the sales tax holiday weekend.

We did some checking for our Lake Wedowee Life readers and Randolph County is participating in the event as well as Roanoke. So if you go buy a generator in Roanoke, you could save 10 percent in sales tax... (As long as it's priced under $1,000)
