Trumbull commissioner wants tax holiday expanded

WARREN, Ohio (WYTV) – Trumbull County Commissioner Dan Polivka said Tuesday that he would like to see Ohio’s tax holiday expanded. Polivka wants to get together a resolution to send to Columbus to continue the tax-free weekend for years to come because he says it helped businesses and shoppers. 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. Ohio just finished its first-ever tax-free weekend, which lasted from Aug. 7-9. The tax break over the weekend was on clothing and footwear items under $75 and for classroom supplies that cost $20 or less. Items priced higher than those limits weren’t eligible for the tax savings. The <a href=”http://wkbn.com/2015/08/11/merchants-group-says-sales-tax-holiday-was-a-success/&#8221; target=”_blank”>Ohio Council of Retail Merchants said</a> 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.
