Alabama's tax-free weekend for back-to-school supplies is Friday through Sunday, Aug. 3-5.

The state is waiving its 4 percent sales tax and many cities and counties are doing the same with their local sales taxes.

The state Revenue Department says the cities participating include Huntsville, Birmingham, Montgomery, Mobile, Anniston, Florence, Gadsden, Opelika and Dothan.

Three of Alabama's four biggest counties, Mobile, Montgomery and Madison, are participating, but Jefferson County is not.

Items that qualify for the sale tax break include clothing under $100, school supplies under $50, books under $30, and computers and computer equipment under $750.

In west Alabama, York, Livingston, Sumter County, Butler, Choctaw County, Tuscaloosa, Tuscaloosa County, Demopolis and Marengo County are participating.
