Think about everything you need to get through a hurricane or a tornado or any other weather disaster.
A can opener that doesn't require electricity. Flashlights. Batteries. Cellphone battery and charger. Duct tape. Plywood.
Maybe even a generator.
This weekend is Alabama's Severe Weather Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday. Beginning at 12:01 a.m., on Friday, February 22, and ending at midnight on Sunday, February 24, the purchase of severe weather preparedness items valued at $60 or less are exempt from state sales tax. Portable generators and power cords under $1,000 each are also exempt.
Local taxes may still apply. You can see if your local area is participating HERE.
Look at the list below to see what's covered in the Sales Tax Holiday....
