Ohioans get 3-day break from state sales tax for some items

Monday announced that a sales tax holiday will be held this weekend, an opportunity for parents to receive some tax relief during back-to-school shopping in preparation for the new school year which will also stimulate economic activity for Ohio's retailers. In April, Gov. Scott Walker used a partial veto to extend the period to five days.

That's because the new 0.45-cent sales tax bill passed by the Legislature and signed into law by Gov. John Bel Edwards this summer discontinued the state's three sales tax holidays for seven years. You can find that list on Missouri's Tax Holiday website. "It definitely helps with traffic and sales, having the tax free, everybody likes that savings", explained Pinson. "A lot of these purchases are the ones people make when they are doing their back to school shopping". "So, you can definitely save more this weekend".

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.

Over the weekend, people across the state of MS hit the racks for Tax Free Weekend.

European Open: Richard McEvoy claims victory as Bryson DeChambeau struggles
Before Sunday he had won three titles on the Challenge Tour but victory at the highest level had eluded him. American Bryson DeChambeau has apologised for his behaviour at the end of the European Open in Germany.

Qualifying Energy Star or WaterSense products (must be purchased for noncommercial or personal use): $2,500 or less per item.

From Friday through Sunday, clothing items costing less than $75 per item and school supplies costing less than $20 per item will be tax-free.

If a customer purchases an exempt item during the "sales tax holiday" and later exchanges the item for the same item (different size, different color, etc.), no additional tax will be due even if the exchange is made after the "sales tax holiday".
