Bill makes Ohio back-to-school tax holiday annual event
The Ohio sales tax holiday that benefited back-to-school shoppers the last several years will become an annual, three-day event under a bill passed by state lawmakers.
During the first weekend in August, shoppers wouldn't pay sales tax on qualifying purchases, including clothing items under $75 and school supplies under $20.
The measure now heads to the governor's desk.
This year's tax-free weekend will begin Aug. 3.
