Columbus - 

State Representative Jonathan Dever (R-Madeira) today announced that Ohio’s annual sales tax holiday is set for the first weekend of August. The sales tax holiday is intended to provide families with tax relief in preparation for the new school year. From Friday, August 3rd through Sunday, August 5th, clothing items up to $75 each and school supplies or instructional materials up to $20 each will be free of taxes if purchased during this weekend.


“The sales tax holiday is a great opportunity for families and educators to prepare for the upcoming school year and save more of their hard-earned money,” said Rep. Dever. “We’ve seen the success of the sales tax holiday in past years, and I’m proud to support making this holiday weekend permanent.”


In 2017 the General Assembly made the sales tax holiday permanent by passing Senate Bill 226. According to a study produced by the University of Cincinnati, the first time the sales tax holiday took place in 2015 Ohio families and teachers saved approximately $3.3 million.
