Ohio’s “Sales Tax Holiday” Likely to Return

The Ohio House has passed legislation that will likely mean the return of the sales tax exemption holiday in August 2016.

The bill now goes to Governor John Kasich, who is expected to sign off on it, making way for the chance at savings for Ohio consumers.

The proposed holiday would take place between the dates of August 5-7 and would offer a break on sales tax for certain clothing and back-to-school items.

In 2015, the tax exemption applied to clothing items prices up to $75 each. For school supplies, the savings applied to items priced at $20 or less.
