OH offers sales tax holiday this weekend

Ohio to have a sales-tax holiday

School supplies priced at $50 or less per item: includes textbooks, notebooks, paper, writing instruments, crayons, art supplies, rulers, book bags, backpacks, handheld calculators, graphing calculators, chalk, maps, and globes.

You can find a list of qualifying items and more details on Tax-Free Weekend in Texas on the Comptroller's website.

The objective of the bill was to help parents buy all of their children's back-to-school needs. This sales tax free weekend has been going on in MS for ten years.

Norah Johnson, 8, shows her mother Tracy a flexible ruler as they shop for back-to-school supplies on Wednesday, Aug. 1, 2018, at Shopko in West Bend, Wisconsin.

Missouri's Tax Free Holiday starts Friday.

Until midnight Sunday, many items of apparel, along with school supplies, computers and related equipment, can be purchased without paying the state and local sales tax.

Wildfires scorch homes, land - and California's firefighting budget
Almost 10 days after it started near Highway 299 west of Redding, the fire is only 35 percent contained. Twin fires also burned in Mendocino and Lake counties, affecting 14 homes and threatened 12,000 more.


As South Carolina prepares for its annual Sales Tax Holiday Weekend, North Carolina goes on its fifth year without the back-to-school shopping option.

The sales tax was waived on purchases of clothing and school supplies of less than one-hundred dollars and on computers less than 15-hundred dollars.

A report, released in July by the Tax Foundation, says temporary tax exemptions are a "political gimmick" that cause more harm than good and fail to solve larger policy issues.

What neighboring states still hold tax free holidays?

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

In Wake County, according to a table from the state Department of Revenue, the total sales tax is 7.25 percent. Every year places like the Gulfport Premium Outlets gear up and offer even more sales on top of the already eliminated seven percent tax. So it definitely can help them save a little bit of money.
