State Rep. Jessica E. Miranda (D-Forest Park) 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.

“As a mother of two girls in school, this tax holiday is something my family looks forward to every year. It is also an excellent opportunity to spend with your children as you prepare for the upcoming school year,” said Rep. Miranda. “So I encourage all the families of the Great 28 to take advantage of the sales tax holiday for all your back to school needs.”

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.
