COLUMBUS – State Representatives Nick Santucci (R-Howland Twp.) and Melanie Miller (R-City of Ashland) this week introduced the Baby Products Tax Exemption Bill, which exempts certain baby products from the sales and use tax. 

“Eliminating the sales tax on these necessities will help ease the financial burden on Ohio families raising children,” Santucci said.

The bill proposes to create a sales and use tax exemption for certain baby products, including children’s diapers, car seats, cribs, strollers, baby carriers, and baby monitors. The exemption will ease the financial burden on Ohio families raising children. 

Additionally, the elimination of sales tax on these products will help ensure that Ohio families have access to the essential items necessary for the health and well-being of their children.

“I want to make Ohio the number one state in America to raise a family,” Santucci added. “This pro-family bill will help keep young families in Ohio and reduce costs for parents hammered by inflation over the past two years.” 

The measure now awaits official committee assignment.
