STATEHOUSE - 

Legislation spearheaded by State Senator Kevin Bacon (R-Minerva) establishes a sales tax holiday that will take place from August 7-9, 2015.

Ohio consumers will enjoy an exemption from paying sales tax on all clothing and footwear up to $75 per item and certain school supplies and instructional materials up to $20 per item.

"The sales tax holiday can't come at a better time for families preparing their kids to go back to school in August," said Bacon. "The opportunity to save money on essential clothing and school items will reduce the financial strain on consumers and boost sales for local businesses." 

Senate Bill 243, introduced by Bacon in 2013 and signed into law in December 2014, introduces the sales tax holiday to Ohio for the first time this year. 

As the leader of the push to implement the sales tax holiday in Ohio, Bacon will make himself available for press inquiries and interviews.
