One of the state's biggest shopping weekends is back!
Ohio's tax-free weekend will take place Aug. 2-4, meaning it's an ideal time to stock up on back-to-school supplies.
The sales tax holiday begins at noon Aug. 2 and runs until midnight Aug. 4. During that time, state sales and use tax of 5.75% is waived on certain products.
Here's what's included:
- Clothing priced $75 per item or less: Includes shirts, blouses, sweaters, shoes, rainwear, mittens, lab coats, diapers and even wedding apparel. See a full list.
- School supplies priced $20 per item or less: Includes binders, book bags, calculators, notebooks, pens and more. See a full list.
- School instructional materials priced $20 per item or less: Includes reference books, reference maps and globes, textbooks and workbooks.
Online shopping orders are also valid for tax-free weekend. Orders must be placed and paid during the active timeframe.
