Ohio – Consumer’s Use Tax Amnesty Ending

 1/30/2013

SALT Report 2091 – The Ohio Department of Taxation reminds taxpayers that the state’s Consumer’s Use Tax Amnesty program will end on May 1, 2013. The amnesty program is designed to help businesses who are unaware that they owe use tax or for those who have fallen behind in their use tax payments.  If you have not received an assessment notice from the Department, you may be eligible for amnesty; however your application must be postmarked by May 1, 2013.

The Department’s website offers step-by-step-instructions on how to apply for the amnesty program, as well as tutorials that demonstrate how to register for an OBG account, establish a Consumer’s Use Tax account, complete a return and set up a payment plan.

If you would like additional information regarding use tax, the Department has written a series of fact sheets that explain how it commonly applies to certain businesses such as:   construction contracting, manufacturing, retailing and other service-related enterprises.
