Representative Christina Hagan (R-Alliance) announced today that Ohio’s first-ever, one-time Sales Tax Holiday will begin on Friday, August 7th at 12:01 a.m. and will end on Sunday, August 9th at 11:59 p.m. This initiative was created through Senate Bill 243, signed into law in December of 2014.


“As we continue our work to lower taxes for Ohioans, a tax holiday is a great way to say thank you for a percent of the hard earned dollar that you send for services to the community every day,” said Hagan.


The sales tax holiday will be especially beneficial for back-to-school shopping, and the tax exempt items are as follows:


  • Clothing priced at $75 or less

  • School supplies priced at $20 or less

  • School instructional material priced at $20 or less


These price limits apply on a per-item basis, and Ohioans can purchase as many items as they need. Items with a price higher than these limits will be taxed at the standard rate.


Additional information on the Sales Tax Holiday is available through the Ohio Department of Taxation at
