COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — As of this month, parents looking to buy diapers, a car seat, and other baby products won’t have to pay sales tax in Ohio.
The new law, which went into effect Sunday, exempts products specifically for babies from the state’s 5.75% sales tax.
- children’s diapers
- therapeutic or preventative creams and wipes primarily used on children
- child restraint devices or booster seats
The exemption, passed as part of the state’s budget in June, also applies to products bought online.
Anyone who believes they were wrongfully charged sales tax after Oct. 1 can fill out this form online to request a sales tax refund from the state.
