This week OMA submitted initial comments to the Ohio Department of Taxation regarding revisions to OAC 5703-9-21, the manufacturing sales tax rule. OMA requested in the comments that the department reconvene the working process initiated in the late 1980s that drafted the original rule. The rule itself has not been reviewed in almost 30 years.
This rule review provides a golden opportunity for manufacturers to work together to improve upon the original success of the rule and to ensure that the tax department fairly treats the manufacturing process.
On May 16 the OMA Tax Committee will focus on the rule and the process the association will take to ensure manufacturing’s voice is heard during the review. We will have a presentation from the tax department, as well as analysis from our subject matter experts. Register for the committee meeting here.
OMA will be creating a working group to help steer the association as discussions begin with the department. All members who would like to work through the OMA to review this very important rule please contact OMA’s Rob Brundrett. 4/27/2017
