COLUMBUS –State Representative Kris Jordan (R-Ostrander) announced today that Ohio’s annual sales tax holiday will be August 6 through 8.
The holiday marks the weekend where 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.
State lawmakers created the annual event to provide additional tax relief for Ohioans during back-to-school season.
“As a dad, I know just how expensive back-to-school shopping can be for families,” said Jordan. “I encourage everyone to shop local, and take advantage of Ohio’s annual holiday this weekend.”
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, as well.
