This year’s back-to-school sales tax holiday is scheduled for July 19-21. People shopping between 12:01 a.m. on Friday, July 19, and midnight on Sunday, July 21, will not have to pay state sales and use taxes and some local sales and use taxes on select items. The three-day sales and use tax holiday was first created by the Legislature in 2006 to give people a break from taxes as they shop for items needed for their children to return to school. The state gives counties and municipalities the option of whether to waive their own sales and use taxes for the same period. The Hoover City Council approved Hoover’s participation this year with a vote on May 20. Jefferson and Shelby counties also are participating, according to the Alabama Department of Revenue’s website. However, Jefferson County only waives half of its sales and use taxes. The 1 percent sales tax allocated for education in Jefferson County will be still collected.
