State Rep. Sarah Fowler Arthur (R-Geneva-on-the-Lake) announces that Ohio’s annual sales tax holiday will be this upcoming weekend 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.
“With children getting back to school very soon, this is an opportune time for parents to get that shopping done for various clothing and school supplies,” said Fowler Arthur. “This is a tax relief weekend on these items and I definitely encourage Ohio families to take advantage of it.”
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.
