Miller to Introduce Baby Products Tax Exemption Bill
Updated: Mar 29
COLUMBUS, OH – State Rep. Melanie Miller (R-City of Ashland) will introduce the Baby Products Tax Exemption Bill, companion legislation to Senate Bill 39. The legislation exempts certain baby products from the sales and use tax. Miller is a joint sponsor on the bill.
"The Baby Products Tax Exemption Bill recognizes the challenges Ohio families face in raising children and aims to alleviate their financial burden,” said Miller. “By providing tax exemptions for essential baby products, we hope to encourage people to stay in Ohio as we work to invest in our families."
The bill proposes to create a sales and use tax exemption for certain baby products, including children’s diapers, car seats, cribs, strollers, baby carriers, and baby monitors. The exemption will ease the financial burden on Ohio families raising children. Additionally, the elimination of sales tax on these products will help ensure that Ohio families have access to the essential items necessary for the health and well-being of their children.
Miller also notes the bill represents a positive step towards supporting Ohio families and improving the lives of young children with this financial relief when taxes and inflation have been burdensome for Ohioans.
The legislation currently has nine (9) cosponsors in the Ohio House and is also joint sponsored by State Rep. Nick Santucci (R-Howland Twp.).
State Representative Melanie Miller is currently serving her first term in the Ohio House of Representatives. She represents the 67th House District, which includes all of Ashland County and the western portion of Medina County.
