Wednesday, Ohio lawmakers finished legislation to create a third annual back-to-school tax holiday over the first weekend of August.
Senate Bill 9 passed the House with a 92-1 vote, then the Senate confirmed the vote with a stipulation that it becomes law as soon as the Governor signs the measure.
The bill calls for sales tax breaks on clothing and other specified purchases made August 4, 5, & 6, 2017. It will exempt sales tax on clothing items up to $75 and school supplies and instructional materials up to $20 each, at a store or online.
This does not cover computers, electronics, sports equipment, hair accessories or higher priced clothes.
