The resolution passed just a few days before the Saturday deadline, after which the decision would have fallen to Revenue Commissioner Geoffrey Snyder.

The annual sales tax holiday weekend suspends the collection of the state's 6.25% sales tax on most items that retail for less than $2,500. The holiday applies to both brick-and-mortar stores and purchases made over the internet.

Besides items that retail for more than $2,500, shoppers will still have to pay sales tax on the following items:

  • Meals
  • Alcoholic beverages
  • Tobacco products
  • Marijuana or marijuana products
  • Motor vehicles
  • Motorboats
  • Telecommunications services
  • Gas
  • Steam
  • Electricity
