Ohio – Motor Vehicle and Watercraft Electronic Sales Tax Payments

 1/30/2013

SALT Report 2096 – The Ohio Treasurer of State adopted a rule that requires all sales and use tax payments for motor vehicles and watercraft be made by electronic funds transfer through the Treasurer of State’s online payment processing system.

The rule requires that the county clerk forward all sales and use taxes collected from sales of motor vehicles, off-highway motorcycles, all-purpose vehicles, titled watercraft and outboard motors to the treasurer of state every Friday.  Once a tax payment has been made, the treasurer of state will forward an online remittance report to the tax commissioner.  Failure to remit any sales or use tax due will result in the loss of poundage fees paid to the county clerk for sales made during that week.

The provisions of this rule will be effective February 4, 2013.
