Just after the new year, Governor-elect Mike DeWine appointed former State Representative Jeff McClain as the next Ohio Department of Taxation Commissioner.
Most recently, McClain had been serving as director of tax and economic policy for the Ohio Chamber of Commerce. He served in the state legislature for nearly eight years and was the long-serving Wyandot County auditor for 26 years.
While in the legislature McClain chaired the powerful House Ways and Means Committee which oversaw tax policy and legislation in that chamber.
The OMA has worked closely with McClain both as a state representative and in his most current role. We are excited to continue our working relationship as he takes over the Department of Taxation. Congratulations to Jeff and best of luck. 1/10/2019
