Within the next month, the majority of Ohio students will be headed back to school and that means school supply lists are starting to make their way into the hands of students and caregivers.  To help with the burden of back to school expenses, Ohio Legislators have instituted a back to school sales tax holiday for the weekend of August 7, 8 and 9, 2015.  Clothing valued up to $75, school supply items priced up to $20 and instructional materials priced up to $20 will be exempt from taxes during the holiday.

For more specific information and to see the answers to frequently asked questions regarding the new tax holiday, see the Ohio Department of Taxation.
