Article by CSH’s Jesse MacDonald

On February 21, The Franklin County Court of Common Pleas decided in favor of the Ohio State Tax Commissioner, bringing to a close litigation over the centralized filing of municipal net profits tax through Ohio Business Gateway. Lawsuits had originally been filed in Franklin County in November 2017 and in Lorraine County in December 2017, but the Lorraine County lawsuit was combined with the Franklin County lawsuit. The Court found that all challenged provisions of H.B. 49 were constitutional and within the state general assembly’s authority.

Previously, business clients would need to file a municipal net profit tax return in every city where the client had an obligation to file a return. Now, taxpayers that opt in only need to file one return on Ohio Business Gateway, and this one return will encompass every municipality in which they are required to file returns. The new state-administered system greatly simplifies municipal tax filings through the electronic filing of a single form on the Ohio Business Gateway.

If you have questions about municipal tax filing in Ohio, contact your CSH advisor.
