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.
People could purchase items such as clothing, shoes, and school and arts supplies that cost $100 or less with no sales tax.
In anctipation of the crowds, Cottonwood Mall has added hours to its weekend schedule, staying open until 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 7 p.m. Sunday.
School computer supplies purchased by the consumer for personal use won't be taxed if items are under $250.
Unlike past year, however, the sales tax doesn't apply to computers. We did see a lot more influx of that market.
State Rep. Paula Davis, R-Baton Rouge, who authored Act 1 from the third Special Session of the year, said the sales tax holidays weren't discussed in the debate on her bill "because it was already a dead issue".

"For coupons, it does help to be underneath that price rage before the coupon applies, but you can get an even bigger discount", said Hollenbeck. "It's very heavily trafficked, and right now our traffic is trending up so we are expecting more than past year".
State officials estimate the sales tax holiday will reduce state revenue by up to $16.9 million in 2020.
Most delivery charges are included in the tax base for the sales tax and the use tax.
It's also a good time to get items tax-free for storm and emergency preparedness.
It may be a little early for back-to-school shopping, but if you're in need of certain items, you might just want to hit the stores a little early this year.
Items used in a trade or business are not exempt.
