The Ohio Senate unanimously approved a bill earlier this year that made the three-day sales tax holiday permanent. That's because shoppers went shopping over the weekend in droves.

Some restrictions do apply - single clothing items over $75 and individual back to school supplies over $20 will be taxed.

The holiday begins at midnight Friday and runs through 11:59 a.m. Sunday.

You can also get the qualified items online, tax free. That includes clothing, shoes, school supplies and some electronics.

Back in January, Walker stopped at the La Crosse Airport, holding a Spider-Man backpack touting the sales tax holiday, along with the recently completed $100 per child tax credit - which pundits also called an election gimmick.

Items.com spokesperson Sarah Hollenbeck encourages shoppers to bring in coupons, as those discounts will be added in addition to the tax exception.

Louisiana's Department of Revenue estimates the sales tax holidays would have cost the state $5.2 million in taxes this year.

Clothing items under $75 are not taxable. "So, you can definitely save more this weekend".
