To assist families having to buy items for the new school year, there will be a sales tax holiday weekend beginning Friday, August 5 at 12:00am to Sunday, August 7 at 11:59pm.

There are restrictions put on what can be bought without being taxed: Clothing priced at $75 or less, school supplies priced at $20 per item or less, and school instructional material priced at $20 per item or less.

See the Ohio Department of Taxation website for more information.  Their frequently asked questions section is also very helpful.
