State’s sales tax holiday next weekend

Independent staff and submitted information

COLUMBUS — Ohio’s annual sales tax holiday will be August 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 costing up to a certain price.

State lawmakers created the annual event to provide additional tax relief for Ohioans during back-to-school season. 

The following items are exempt from sales and use tax:

  • Clothing items priced at $75 or less
  • School supplies priced at $20 or less
  • 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.
