Huffman encourages Ohioans to take advantage of sales tax holiday


COLUMBUS—Senate President Matt Huffman, R-Lima, wants to remind everyone across the state, and families living in the 12th Senate District, to make the most of the upcoming back-to-school sales tax holiday, Aug. 5-7.

“Over the years, the sales tax holiday has proven to be an effective tool to relieve some of the financial burden of the start of a new school year,” said Huffman. “With many families struggling with rising costs of goods and services, I encourage parents and teachers to take advantage of this opportunity to keep more of their hard-earned dollars, while ensuring our kids are prepared to return to the classroom.”

In the 132nd General Assembly, Huffman co-sponsored Senate Bill 226, which created a permanent three-day sales tax “holiday” each August, during which sales of clothing and school supplies are exempt from sales and use tax.
