The Alabama legislature is seeing increased support for the idea of eliminating the sales tax on groceries in that state. Neighboring states of Georgia and Florida already have reduced or eliminated the sales tax on most grocery products.
A recent poll by the Associated Press shows that 60% of the legislators in the Alabama House and Senate believe the time is right to eliminate the grocery tax. Democrats have tried for several years to get the grocery tax cut or eliminated in Alabama. At this point it is still not clear if Democrats and Republicans in Alabama can come up with a bill that would pass both houses of the legislature to eliminate the grocery tax.
