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


“I am pleased that the state has decided to continue to support this important cost saving measure,” said Rep. Crossman “As Ohio families prepare for the upcoming school year, this tax holiday will help them prepare without breaking the bank. We hope students, parents, and educators all have an opportunity to participate this weekend.”


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.
