Budget Would Simplify Municipal Income Tax Payment


As every business taxpayer knows, Ohio has an administratively burdensome, and costly, municipal tax system. Governor Kasich proposes to simplify its payment process. He would streamline the process by having businesses file just one form for municipal taxes and make a single payment through the Ohio Business Gateway. The Ohio Department of Taxation would process payments and distribute revenues back to the appropriate local governments, just as it does for county sales taxes and school district income taxes. This reform has been advocated by the OMA and its business allies, and opposed by the municipal lobby.  1/30/2017
