This week the 10th District Court of Appeals ruled 2-1 that the municipal tax reform provisions of House Bill 49 and House Bill 5 are constitutional. The provisions had been challenged by more than 100 municipalities.
The legislation streamlined municipal income tax reporting and collections for businesses across the state. The OMA participated in a coalition that supported the changes.
It has yet to be determined if the municipalities will appeal the ruling to the Supreme Court of Ohio. 1/31/2019
