COLUMBUS - 

Representative Jonathan Dever (R-Madeira) announced today that Ohio’s first-ever, one-time Sales Tax Holiday has begun today 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.


“The sales tax holiday will help Ohio families not only save money as they prepare for the upcoming school year, but provide help to students with the needed supplies and clothing to ensure their success in the classroom,” said Rep. Dever.


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 http://www.tax.ohio.gov/sales_and_use/SalesTaxHoliday.aspx.
