Ohio Sales Tax Holiday - August 7-9

Ohio!! Have you heard? Next weekend is TAX FREE WEEKEND!!

It's Back to School time (yes, ALREADY) and what better way to help Ohioans save than to take away that pesky tax!! Yes, taxes are helpful for the upkeep of our community, but it will be a welcomed vacation for frugalicious divas (and dons) such as yourselves!!

So, here's the deal!! This sales holiday will begin Friday, August 7, 2015 and will last through Sunday, August 9, 2015!! No sales tax!!

Here are the stipulations:
    • Clothing priced at $75 per item or less
    • School supplies priced at $20 per item or less
    • School instructional material priced at $20 per item of less
If you have any specific questions, I suggest you read up on the Ohio Department of Taxation site. If you don't want to, it's cool, because I did it for you. Here are some frugalicious finds I pulled out of FAQs.

ALL clothing under $75 (per individual item) is tax free, meaning anything you put on your head, shoulders, knees and toes (knees and toes) Who else sang? LOL!! What's even better? This includes DIAPERS for my frugalicious new Moms out there!! 

Getting married? This would be the time to find a frugalicious deal under $75 and save even more because don't have to pay tax!! Have your kid's school supply lists? Get them ready because not only are the sales on, but you'll save the tax!! 

You can still use your coupons during the Sales Tax Holiday!! Though your OOP (out of pocket) will be lower, the coupons don't disrupt the actual sales price, so it's all good!! 

There are some exclusions (items used in a trade or business are not eligible), but if you following the basic three items up top, you will reap the benefits of paying NO TAX next week!! Don't let anyone give you any drama either because according to the law, they HAVE to participate in this Sales Tax Holiday!! 

Get ready to save next week!!
