COLUMBUS – State Rep. Dontavius L. Jarrells (D-Columbus) today announced the upcoming back-to-school Ohio sales tax holiday that will take place starting on Friday, August 4 through Sunday, August 6. In 2018, state lawmakers passed legislation making this three-day, back-to-school sales tax holiday a recurring holiday each year.

“The sales tax holiday is a profound way in which we can lend support to hard working Ohioans as our children prepare to go back to school,” said Rep. Jarrells. “I encourage all Ohioans to take advantage of this opportunity, and I urge my colleagues to consider how we can continue to create a better Ohio for all by putting people first and uplifting working families across our state.” 

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.
