DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) - 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 Aug. 7-9.

The holiday covers clothes priced at less than $100, computers and educational software worth less than $750, school supplies, books and more.
