Published 3:08 pm Tuesday, June 9, 2015

A dollar will stretch a little farther the first weekend in August.

That’s because the Butler County Commission and the Greenville City Council have voted at recent regular meetings to take part in Alabama’s 10th annual sales tax holiday.

The Alabama Department of Revenue’s website also lists the City of Georgiana as a participating municipality.

Each county and municipality in Alabama decides if it will waive local sales tax, collect a portion or not participate in the sales-tax-free weekend. Retailers are required to participate and may not charge tax on items that are legally tax-exempt during the sales tax holiday.

The City of Greenville and Butler County have participated in the sales tax holiday since its inception.

The holiday, which is scheduled to begin at 12:01 a.m. Aug. 7 and end at midnight Aug. 9, covers clothing items less than $100, school supplies, books, computers and computer equipment.
