OHIO - Shoppers in Ohio can enjoy an entire weekend tax-free while buying school supplies and other back-to-school items.

In May, Gov. John Kasich signed a bill into law that allows for a sales-tax holiday from Aug. 5-7. The measure is aimed at helping back-to-school shoppers cut the cost of clothing and school supplies.

The tax-exempt period applies to clothing items that cost $75 or less and to classroom supplies and instructional materials priced at $20 or less. Such items include book bags, textbooks, notebooks and pencils.

Ohioans saved about $3.3 million on back-to-school items during the three-day period last year.
