Ohioans get 3-day break from state sales tax for some items

George McgeeAug 03, 2018

Before families take advantage of tax-free weekend sales, Offers.com suggest that Ohioans utilize coupons, research store discounts, and utilize options like layaway and online ordering.

"It seems like more people are aware of it this year than before", said Burger.

Wisconsin is joining several other states across the country in taking part in a sales tax holiday this year. It's a great time to save money on school supplies and back-to-school clothes.

The restriction includes accessories like mouth guards and gloves, as well as cleated or spiked athletic shoes.

However, if the customer returns the item after the "sales tax holiday" and receives credit on the purchase of a different item, the sales or use tax will apply to the sale of the newly purchased item. That's because shoppers went shopping over the weekend in droves. Over the years, I've learned that it's definitely worthwhile.

School instructional materials are defined by the state tax department as, "reference books, reference maps and globes, textbooks and workbooks".

That includes binders and calculators, and construction paper, poster board, glue and scissors for those school projects.

The commonwealth now combines its three sales tax holidays into one, making back-to-school supplies, hurricane and winter preparedness supplies and energy-efficient appliances tax free.

Jermaine McClendon: "The more that you buy, the more you save throughout the year".

"School supplies" does not include any item purchased for use in a trade or business.

We've got the list from the Florida Department of Revenue.
