Reminder: Dept. of Taxation amnesty program underway

Written on Jan 30, 2018

The Ohio Department of Taxation (ODT) is reminding taxpayers and practitioners of the Ohio Tax Amnesty program that began Jan. 1 and end Feb. 15.

The Ohio Tax Amnesty is available to eligible taxpayers—individuals and businesses—with unreported or underreported tax debts. During the six-week amnesty period, taxpayers who fully pay qualifying tax delinquencies will owe no penalties and only half of the interest normally charged.

The program includes the following taxes:

  • Individual income tax
  • School district income tax
  • Employer withholding tax
  • Employer withholding for school district income tax
  • Pass-through entity tax
  • Sales tax
  • Use tax
  • Commercial activity tax
  • Financial institutions tax
  • Cigarette and other tobacco products taxes
  • Alcoholic beverage taxes

The Ohio Tax Amnesty will only be available to individuals and businesses with a tax liability that is unknown to ODT and only for taxes that were due and payable prior to May 1, 2017.

Visit www.OhioTaxAmnesty.gov to determine eligibility or for more information.
