COLUMBUS, Ohio (Statehouse News Bureau) — Going back to school will be different this year but there’s one thing that won’t change.

Ohioans will still be able to take advantage of a tax-free weekend for shopping for those back to school items. And it is happening now.

The annual tax-free holiday began Friday morning and will run through 11:59 p.m. Sunday night.

Ohioans can avoid state sales tax on clothing priced at $75 or less, as well as school supplies and items considered ‘instructional material” that are $20 or less.

The sales tax holiday applies to items purchased in brick-and-mortar stores as well as online retailers.

The holiday was made permanent by the state last year.
