COLUMBUS, Ohio – Parents and students who shop for clothes, school supplies and instructional materials will save some change this weekend, thanks to a sales tax holiday.

The Ohio General Assembly adopted a legislation to create the “holiday” for this weekend. In future years, the sales tax exemption period will also occur on the first weekend of each August.

This year’s holiday is from 12 a.m. Friday until to 11:59 p.m. Sunday.

Keep in mind the per-item exemption is strictly at $75 or less. If you buy an $80 pair of shoes, you will have to pay sales tax on all of it.
