Today we approved Senate Bill 9, which creates another year’s Sales Tax Holiday for the back-to-school shopping season. Once again the savings will apply to items of clothing priced at $75 or less; commonly used school supplies such as crayons, book bags, pencils, etc. priced at $20 or less; and school instructional materials like textbooks and workbooks priced at $20 or less. The price limit is applied per item, so consumers can buy as many tax-exempt items under the price limit as they wish, either online or in stores.
The sales tax holiday will occur August 4-6, 2017. Set a reminder on your calendar now to take part in the savings.
The bill will now go to Governor John Kasich to be signed into law.
