Tax Free Holiday This Weekend for Severe Weather Preparedness Supplies

If you live in Alabama or know someone who does, the weekend is tax free weekend for emergency preparedness items.  Every thing from batteries to generators will be sold without the benefit of our paying sales tax. There is a list of eligible items on the site.

There may not be anyone living in Alabama who reads my blog. But, you can alert anyone you know who might be able to use the information.

Does your state have a tax-free weekend for emergency preparedness?


  1. In Illinois? Are you kidding? I'm surprised our gub'nor doesn't raise taxes on those supplies. Good for you Alabama. Just found your blog. glad I did

  2. Oregon is a sales tax free state (which my vendors can't seem to understand when I tell them that there is no such thing as a resale certificate for Oregon), but I digress. Way way cool that Alabama is doing such a cool thing!

  3. I am sure you have readers in N AL even if they don't leave comments. And I am also sure there are many preppers in the area. The best preppers are laying low and maintaining OP-Sec while continuing to prepare, but they are out there for sure. There is a facebook group for West Tennessee where people post ideas for prepping and post links to helpful blogs and articles on the net. More and more people are getting concerned about the world situation everyday, even people who scoffed at the idea previously, so keep getting as self sufficient as possible and hope for the best!

    1. Swamp Dog,
      This is for severe weather preparedness, but I figured preppers will take full advantage, as they well should. I am from W TN, Memphis to be exact. I need duct tape, just because I ran out, so that an batteries are probably all I will buy. Thanks, Swamp Dog.

  4. I have NEVER heard of a tax free day for particular items. Obviously, someone in D.C. is giving us a huge 'heads up'.

  5. I haven't heard of any similar programs out here but it is a wonderful idea! We don't experience the huge weather events that seem to be happening in the eastern parts of the US. (fingers crossed) Unfortunately earthquakes don't give very much warning. In fact we don't have nearly as many earthquakes as all the jokes would lead you to believe.


For the present, I am taking comment moderation off the blog.
