Lawmakers Approve Back-To-School Sales Tax Holiday

COLUMBUS(AP) For the 3rd year in a row, Ohio lawmakers approve return of the sales tax holiday for back-to-school shopping.

The Ohio House of Representatives and Senate have approved a sales tax holiday just in time for back-to-school shopping.

August 4th through the 6th, all online and in-store vendors are required to waive the collection of local and state sales taxes on certain items.

Savings apply to items of clothing priced at $75 or less, school instructional materials like textbooks and workbooks priced at $20 or less, as well as commonly used school supplies, such as crayons, book bags and pencils.

The price limits apply per item, so shoppers can buy as many tax-exempt items under the price limit as they wish, either online or in stores.

Ohio was one of 17 states that had a sales tax holiday in 2016.

The bill will now head to Governor John Kasich to be signed into law.
