The state’s Department of Revenue recently announced that we’d be enjoying our second sales tax holiday on August 3 – 5. According to their website, the holiday provides shoppers "the opportunity to purchase certain school supplies, computers, and clothing free of state sales or use tax." It also means that you can get that MacBook Pro you’ve been eyeing in Jefferson County and only pay 1% in taxes (for education).

Here’s the list of cities and counties that are participating this year (note that as of yesterday the city of Birmingham had not officially decided if they would participate, though they did last year). The list will be updated as more governments let the state know of their decisions.
