Ohio Employer Electronic Filing Changes for 2015: How to Stay in Compliance

December 17, 2014

Share:

In November, the State of Ohio changed their electronic filing requirement. According to recent communication from the Ohio Department of Taxation, “employers are now required to file and remit payment for Ohio and school district income tax withholding returns using the Ohio Business Gateway. This requirement applies to all withholding tax returns that are filed and paid on or after January 1, 2015.

This requirement to submit payments electronically will affect every employer. Businesses will no longer be able to file these returns in paper format, or remit payment with a paper check, after this date. In fact, those who attempt to do so may face a penalty.

In order to comply with this requirement, employers need to register with the Ohio Business Gateway (OBG). The OBG site and the above communication from the Ohio Department of Taxation offers supportive instructions. If you have any questions, contact your payroll administrator.
