Bill will simplify municipal income tax filings

Buckeye Farm News

It will be helpful to small businesses that don’t have the resources to track their employees and file multiple tax returns with the municipalities they worked in and for people who live and work in multiple jurisdictions.

The measures outlined in the bill will help create a more competitive business environment in Ohio, which is the only state where municipalities set their own rules and regulations. Ohio currently has almost 600 different municipalities using 300 different forms to collect local income taxes annually.

Gov. John Kasich is expected to sign the bill.
