Trumbull commissioner wants tax holiday expanded

ohio tax holiday

WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Trumbull County Commissioner Dan Polivka said Tuesday that he would like to see Ohio’s tax holiday expanded. Polivka says the commissioners plan on creating a resolution to send to Columbus encouraging lawmakers to participate again next year and in years to come and maybe even increase the spending limit since it was such a big hit.
Last weekend, folks shopping in Trumbull County saved 6.75% on clothing under $75 an item and school supplies and materials that cost $20 or less. Polivka also said that he is in favor of raising the dollar-amount limits on items so that more things can be bought tax-free.
The Ohio Council of Retail Merchants said anecdotal reports are that consumers were out in force to take advantage.
Some retailers offered sales specials on top of the tax holiday to keep checkout lines busy. It was the Buckeye State’s first-ever tax holiday.
