COLUMBUS—State Senator Sandra O'Brien (R-Ashtabula) wants to remind everyone across the state, and families living in the 32nd Senate District, to make the most of the back-to-school sales tax holiday, August 5-7.

“The sales tax holiday is a critical and effective tool to relieve some of the financial burdens of the start of a new school year,” said O'Brien. “I encourage parents and teachers to take advantage of this opportunity to keep more of their hard-earned dollars while ensuring our kids are prepared to return to the classroom. As a former teacher, I am wishing our students and teachers a successful school year."

Senate Bill 226 in the 132nd General Assembly created a permanent three-day sales tax "holiday" each August, during which sales of clothing and school supplies are exempt from sales and use tax.
