State Rep. Brigid Kelly (D-Cincinnati) today announced the upcoming back-to-school Ohio sales tax holiday will take place starting on Friday, August 2 through Sunday, August 4. In 2018, state lawmakers passed legislation making this three-day, back-to-school sales tax holiday a recurring holiday each year.


“The sales tax holiday is a great opportunity to help hardworking Ohio families get ready for the school year while supporting local workers and local businesses,” said Kelly. “Saving money on important and necessary items like clothing and school supplies will make it easier for families to ensure that their children are properly prepared to go back to school." 


During the sales tax holiday, there will be no state or local sales or use tax on school and teaching materials that cost up to 20 dollars each. The exemption will also apply to certain items of clothing costing up to 75 dollars each. 


The Ohio back-to-school tax holiday weekend will continue to be on the first Friday through Sunday in August each year.
