CLEVELAND — Shoppers, get your lists ready!  Ohio’s sales tax-free holiday is less than a month away.

From Friday, August 2, beginning at midnight, through Sunday, August 4, ending at 11:59 p.m. clothing items costing less than $75 per item and school supplies and instructional materials costing less than $20 per item will be tax-free. The discount applies to purchases made in stores and online.

A full list of what falls under the sales tax holiday is available online.

Items used in a trade or business are not exempt under the sales tax holiday.

Last year, the Ohio Senate unanimously approved a bill making the three-day sales tax holiday permanent.

The permanent holiday will be held on the first Friday, Saturday and Sunday of August each year.
