Ohio’s favorite Back to School Holiday is only a couple of weeks away! Ohio will open up its Sales Tax Holiday on Friday, August 7 beginning at 12 AM and will end on Sunday, August 9 at 11:59 PM.

Loveland Magazine compiled a list of items below that will be exempt from sales and use tax during the Sales Tax Holiday:

  1. An item of clothing priced at $75 or less
  2. An item of school supplies priced at $20 or less
  3. An item of school instructional material priced at $20 or less
  4. Items used in a trade or business are not exempt under the sales tax holiday

Although COVID-19 is more present than ever businesses will be allowed to promote “Back to School” sales as there has been no restriction placed on advertising for Ohio’s Sales Tax Holiday.
