An upcoming sales tax holiday is expected to offer Alabama shoppers savings on back-to-school supplies.The Alabama Department of Revenue says Alabama's sales tax holiday - when state taxes are dropped from select items - is scheduled for August 7th  through 9th . The holiday covers clothes priced at less than $100, computers and educational software worth less than $750, school supplies, books and more. Alabama Retail Association spokeswoman Nancy Dennis says consumers are expected to spend just more than $1 billion on back-to-school supplies this year and the tax holiday encourages economic activity. Department of Revenue officials say this will be the state's tenth sales tax holiday and local sales taxes may still apply to some goods.
