Beginning Sunday, Ohio shoppers will pay a bit more, but Ohio workers will pay a bit less, as the state sales tax goes up and income tax comes down.
The changes are part of the state's tax reform package passed in June.
Sales tax will rise from 5.5 percent to 5.75 percent, or 25 cents for every $100 spent, on vehicles, electronics, clothing and other retail goods. Groceries, housing, medicines and education are exempt from sales taxes.
State income tax will drop 10 percent over the next two years, including 9 percent beginning Sunday.
