Fultondale to hold back-to-school sales tax holiday again

FULTONDALE — Fultondale will again take part in a “sales tax holiday” to help shoppers save money on school supplies this summer.

The Alabama Department of Revenue is holding its ninth annual back-to-school sales tax holiday, where no state sales tax is charged on certain items. This year’s event is from Aug. 1 at 12:01 a.m. to Aug. 3 at midnight.

Fultondale voted to again participate during its city council meeting Monday. Most municipalities in the area also vote to withhold city sales taxes during the sales tax holiday.

In recent years, Jefferson County did not participate, and continued to collect county taxes on all purchases. That means that exempt items will still be charged a 2-percent sales tax.

Exempt items include clothing that costs $100 or less per item. Certain computers, software and school supplies are also exempt.

For a complete list of exempt and taxable items, visit the Alabama Department of Revenue website.

In other business, the council:

• authorized Mayor Jim Lowery to enter into a renewal with S.S. Nesbitt/AMIC for insurance coverage for 2015-2015. Lowery said there are no changes in the insurance policy from last year.

• heard that the new street department building will be complete in about three months

• heard that the city is building six new women’s restrooms at Black Creek Park

The next city council meeting is May 27, 11:30 a.m., a city hall.
