You can buy diapers tax-free this weekend

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Ohio is cutting taxes on back-to-school items this weekend. That means shoppers won't pay taxes on school supplies and certain clothing items.

There's a surprising item on the state's list of tax-free clothing items: Diapers.

Parents will be pleased to know that both cloth and disposable diapers will be tax exempt Friday through Sunday, according to Ohio's sales tax website.

A broad spectrum of clothing items qualifies for the tax-free holiday. The state lists "clothing" as:

Shirts; blouses; sweaters; pants; shorts; skirts; dresses; uniforms (athletic and nonathletic); shoes and shoe laces; insoles for shoes; sneakers; sandals; boots; overshoes; slippers; steel-toed shoes; underwear; socks and stockings; hosiery; pantyhose; footlets; coats and jackets; rainwear; gloves and mittens for general use; hats and caps; ear muffs; belts and suspenders; neckties; scarves; aprons (household and shop); lab coats; athletic supporters; bathing suits and caps; beach capes and coats; costumes; baby receiving blankets; diapers, children and adult, including disposable diapers; rubber pants; garters and garter belts; girdles; formal wear; and wedding apparel.
