Tax-free weekend is here

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Many parents will be shopping ’til they drop this weekend.

The state’s sales tax holiday for back-to-school supplies kicked off at midnight Thursday night and is now in effect.

Just about everything children need for school: notebooks, pens, pencils, and folders. Even computers, clothes, and shoes, can be purchased tax free Friday through Sunday.
