State Rep. Mike Loychik (R-Bazetta) announces Ohio residents can take advantage of the upcoming Ohio Annual Sales Tax Holiday occurring this weekend, Aug. 5-7. The annual holiday weekend ensures Ohioans do not pay state sales tax on certain exempted items.
“Because of the Biden Administration, families have been burdened with skyrocketing inflation costs, and this tax relief will be really advantageous for parents throughout Trumbull County,” Loychik said. “With two boys myself, I encourage residents to take the opportunity to save some of their hard-earned cash on school supplies for the upcoming school year.”
The holiday exempts clothing items priced up to $75, school supplies up to $20, and school instructional materials at $20 or less. Items for trade or business are not exempt during this holiday.
State lawmakers created the sales tax holiday as a yearly event to provide additional tax relief for Ohioans during back-to-school season.
There is no limit on the number of items, and the exemption is eligible for online purchases as well.
