State Rep. Rodney Creech (R-West Alexandria) announced today that Ohio’s annual sales tax holiday will be Aug. 6-8.
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.
“Ohio families in Preble and Montgomery Counties have a great opportunity this weekend to save money,” said Creech. “They can purchase items for the upcoming school year while not being burdened from sales and use taxes – I highly encourage parents to take advantage of this.”
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.
