Joining other communities across the state, Hoover will participate in a sales tax holiday for severe weather preparedness items from Feb. 22-24.
At its meeting Jan. 8, the Hoover City Council passed a resolution to exempt city sales tax during that weekend on common supplies costing less than $60 that have been identified by the State as needed for homes and businesses in case of natural disaster or emergency.
According to the Alabama Retail Association (ARA), this is Alabama’s second severe weather preparedness sales tax holiday since the State Legislature passed it into law last year. Items exempt include batteries, radios, plastic sheeting, Duct tape, first-aid kits, coolers, fire extinguishers and more.
The ARA also reports that generators under $1,000 are exempt from the state’s four-percent sales tax during the holiday.
