The Severe Weather Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday starts next Friday, February 22, 2019. This gives citizens an opportunity to purchase certain severe weather preparedness supplies free of state sales or use tax (local sales and use tax may apply). The Elmore County Commission unanimously passed Resolution 10-22-2012 to annually participate in the Severe Weather Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday. The holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. (CST) on Friday February 22, 2019 and ending at twelve midnight on Sunday February 24, 2019.
Some of the tax-free items are common supplies costing less than $60 than can be used to prepare for a natural disaster or other emergencies.
