Sales Tax Holiday
With the enactment of Senate Bill 243, Ohio became one of 16 states to declare a Sales Tax Holiday to help families with their back-to-school shopping.
This weekend, August 7-9, sales tax will not be collected on any school item priced less than $20 or any item of clothing (child or adult) priced less than $75. A list of qualifying items can be found in the FAQ page on tax.ohio.gov.
Although the original bill approved by the Ohio Senate was for a recurring sales tax holiday every August and included high-priced electronics items, the final version was much less generous. This weekend's holiday is a "one time only" deal.
Hopefully this is a test which will be successful and lead to future Sales Tax Holiday bills. Happy shopping everyone!
