Last week was the beginning of a sales tax holiday for nearly 34% of all states. Those states include Alabama, Arkansas, Iowa, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma,South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia with Connecticut, Florida, Massachusetts, Maryland, and Texas to soon follow.
Notice, Ohio is not among those states enjoying the sales tax holiday. Why?
I’m pretty sure there are a lot of Ohio parents who would appreciate not contributing an additional 7% or so for sending their children back to schools with new clothes and school supplies. After all, a state that makes parent pay taxes for schools, for school supplies, and for school lunch programs at gun point could at least give them a tax holiday during this important season.
