Beginning at 12:01 a.m. (CST) on Friday July 21, 2017, and ending at twelve midnight on Sunday July 23, 2017, Alabama will hold its twelfth annual sales tax holiday giving shoppers the opportunity to purchase certain school supplies, computers, and clothing free of state sales or use tax. Local sales and use tax may apply.

On May 2, 2017, the Prattville City Council passed an ordinance exempting certain "covered items" from the Municipal Sales and Use Tax on the weekend noted above.
