Sales Tax Holiday

Good News!

From NOW until August 6th, the state of Ohio will have a Sales Tax Holiday that will exempt certain items from sales and use tax. This is a great time to get back-to-school items.

The items that are exempt from tax:

* Clothing priced at $75 per item or less

* School supplies priced at $20 per item or less

* School instructional material priced at $20 per item or less

(Items used in a trade or business are not exempt under the sales tax holiday.)

If you have any questions regarding this information, please visit the Holiday Sales Tax FAQ.


School Supply Lists

Indianola school supply lists can be found on our school’s district website http://indianolainformales.ccsoh.us/.

Middle School students should also purchase one simple sketchbook for art class and a pack of black sharpies!


Support for Families

School Supplies Assistance

Hands on Central Ohio has a list of school supplies giveaway events starting as early as Aug 11. Please read details for each event carefully as some have specific income requirements or zip code restrictions. Children are often required to attend in order to receive supplies.

Clothing Assistance

Outfitting students in grades K-12 with clothes that fit and are appropriate for Ohio weather is the heart of Charity Newsies. The children they serve are enrolled in public, private, charter and vocational schools-students from more than 400 schools in Franklin County are helped each year by them.

The majority of students are given a warm winter jacket, pants, shirts, undergarments, socks, hat, gloves and a shoe voucher for Payless. See this schedule for applying at a library near you.
