State Rep. Juanita Brent (D-Cleveland) 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 sales tax holiday will be a tremendous help for families and teachers alike when shopping for school supplies,” said Rep. Brent. “Ohioans work hard every day to provide for their families so we, as state legislators, must work hard for them to keep our Ohio Promise of living a better life right here at home.”

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.
