Sales tax holiday approved by Montgomery Co. Commission

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Good deals on school supplies are secure following the Montgomery County commission's vote Monday to renew the popular sales tax holiday.

The vote means a tax-break before the school year starts on most school supplies.

"We had talked about how our people here in Alabama go to Georgia for the sales tax holiday," said Commissioner Elton Dean, adding that the holiday has been "really successful."

Each county and city in the state must vote to keep the holiday every year.

Montgomery's tax free weekend is the first weekend in August.
