OMA Asks Tax Commissioner to Defer Deadlines

This week, the OMA wrote Ohio Tax Commissioner Jeff McClain, asking him to act on the authority granted in House Bill 197 to defer tax payments and deadlines during the COVID-19 emergency. The OMA — which advocated for this authority when HB 197 was considered by the General Assembly — specifically asked the commissioner to defer approaching deadlines of the commercial activity tax, as well as the beer and wine excise tax. 5/7/2020
