Sales Tax Exemption for All Food Manufacturers Now in Effect

Good news for all food manufacturers! During last summer’s debate on the state budget (House Bill 166), the OMA led tax changes for food manufacturers as lawmakers approved an expanded sales-and-use tax exemption for equipment and supplies used to clean equipment that produces or processes food for human consumption. (Previously, the exemption applied only to dairy food processors. Now it applies to all Ohio food manufacturers.)

The expanded exemption went into effect Oct. 1, 2019. Make sure you are tracking the necessary information. 10/23/2019
