COLUMBUS - State Senator Rob McColley (R-Napoleon) is reminding people in the 1st Senate District about the upcoming back-to-school sales tax holiday beginning at 12:00 a.m. this Friday, August 4, and running to Sunday, August 6, at 11:59 p.m.   

"I know how inflation is making it difficult for parents to make ends meet, especially when it comes to getting fast-growing children the clothing and supplies they need for school," said McColley. "Ohio lawmakers made this tax holiday specifically to help them, and I strongly urge parents to take advantage of this once-a-year opportunity."

During the holiday, the following items are exempt from sales and use tax:

  • An item of clothing priced at $75 or less
  • An item of school supplies priced at $20 or less
  • An item of school instructional material priced at $20 or less.

There is no limit on the amount of the total purchase that can be tax-exempt.
