Pay No State Sales Tax This Weekend For Back-To-School Items
Going back to school will be different this year, but Ohioans will still be able to take advantage of a sales tax holiday this weekend for back to school items. Ohio Public Radio's Jo Ingles reports.
The annual tax-free holiday began Friday morning and will run through 11:59 p.m. Sunday night. Ohioans can avoid state sales tax on clothing priced at $75 or less, as well as school supplies and items considered ‘instructional material” that are $20 or less. The sales tax holiday applies to items purchased in brick-and-mortar stores as well as online retailers. The holiday was made permanent by the state last year.
