COLUMBUS - 

Representative Steve Huffman (R-Tipp City) 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 urge my constituents to take advantage of the Sales Tax Holiday to not only help stimulate the local economy, but the state as a whole,” said Huffman. “For the parents and students, this will be an opportune time to stock up on supplies for the upcoming school year.”


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.
