State Rep. Gary Click (R-Vickery) announces Ohio residents can take advantage of the upcoming Ohio Annual Sales Tax Holiday occurring this weekend, Aug. 5-7. The annual holiday weekend ensures Ohioans do not pay state sales tax on certain exempted items.
“Ohio families have been hit hard with rising prices due to inflation, and now is the time for some tax relief,” Click said. “With kids going back to school, I hope our residents take a look at these discounts and take this opportunity to get some shopping done for the school year while saving their money.”
The holiday exempts clothing items priced up to $75, school supplies up to $20, and school instructional materials at $20 or less. Items for trade or business are not exempt during this holiday.
State lawmakers created the sales tax holiday as a yearly event to provide additional tax relief for Ohioans during back-to-school season.
There is no limit on the number of items, and the exemption is eligible for online purchases as well.
