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

“The back-to-school tax holiday weekend helps working families make their money go farther and ensures our kids are well-equipped to go back to school,” said Rep. Clites. “It is important to me to support Ohio’s working families and ensure a good education for all children, and I hope that families take advantage of this opportunity.”

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.
