COLUMBUS- State Representative Dick Stein (R-Norwalk) reminds Ohio residents to take advantage of the upcoming sales tax holiday this weekend, August 4-6.
The holiday marks the weekend when Ohioans will not have to pay state sales and use taxes on clothing items, school supplies, and school instructional materials up to a certain price.
“The sales tax weekend is a small way the legislature can help parents keep some money in their pockets while preparing their kids for the upcoming school year,” said Stein. “I encourage parents to take advantage of this opportunity.”
The following items are exempt from sales and use tax:
- Clothing items priced at $75 or less;
- School supplies priced at $20 or less; and
- School instructional materials priced at $20 or less.
There is no limit on the number of items, and the exemption is eligible for online purchases.
