Sales Tax Set To Rise Sept. 1
Effective Sept. 1, the state sales tax rate will be 5.75 percent (currently 5.5 percent). The .25 percent increase will pay for an income tax cut of 10 percent on all brackets, phased in over three years (in 2013, it is an 8.5 percent cut and by 2015, will be the full 10 percent).
State sales tax rate on the storage, use or other consumption of tangible personal property or services and retail sales made on or after Sept. 1, 2013, is 5.75 percent. Note that all local Ohio jurisdictions impose a local sales tax and use tax in addition to the state rate.
