Need to save some pennies, Columbus? Friday morning started Ohio’s sales-tax holiday, when you can purchase any of the following without paying that little extra:
- clothing items, including shoes, priced at $75 dollars or less
- school supplies priced at $20 dollars or less
- school instructional materials priced at $20 dollars or less.
There are no limits on total purchase. Whether the exemption applies is determined item by item.
This year’s tax-free weekend ends Aug. 9 at 11:59 p.m.
