COLUMBUS - 

 


Representative Louis W Blessing III (R-Colerain) 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.  


 


“I am pleased to see that Ohio will now have a Sales Tax Holiday,” said Blessing. “This will greatly benefit our great state as we move into the upcoming school year. This will help save families money so that every student is able to get the necessary supplies to succeed.”  


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.
