Sales tax on school, emergency supplies to take holiday August 3-5

Staples is just one company offering discounts on products during the tax-free weekend

Yes, provided the item sold is one qualifying for the exemption and the sale occurs during the three days of the "sales tax holiday" as discussed in Question #3. Ohioans who shop online will have to place their order during the tax-free weekend period.

While the first day of school might be about a month away, you can get a head start on some of that back to school shopping thanks to the yearly tax-free weekend.

Some clothing, school supplies, and instructional materials will be exempt from sales and use tax.

Tax Free Weekend ends Sunday night at 11:59, however many stores will be closing before then.

"It's kind of confusing", said Hollenbeck, "because certain categories can have items that are tax free, and those that aren't". For clothing, the price of the item must be $75 or under. We did see a lot more influx of that market. "It's also big because it's right before fair, so everybody is wanting to rush in and get their back to school shopping finished". You're in luck, because this year's Virginia sales tax holiday is coming up.

According to offers.com, items that don't qualify under tax-free purchases include include watches, jewelry, umbrellas, handkerchiefs, sporting equipment, and any special clothing or footwear designed primarily for athletic activity or protective use, and not usually considered appropriate for everyday wear.

The holiday this year is projected to save shoppers $32.7 million, reducing state revenue by $26 million and local-government revenue by $6.7 million.
