Mandel pushing for one-form tax filing

Josh Mandel

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Ohio State Treasurer Josh Mandel says he wants to make life easier for small business people trying to file their municipal income taxes.

Mandel was in Youngstown Tuesday and met with local business men and women at City Machine Technologies. Mandel told the group he has been pushing lawmakers to approve changes in the paperwork local municipalities use to collect incomes taxes, namely he would like to move to a single-form tax filing document for small businesses.

“If they do business in a lot of small municipalities over the course of a year, at the end of the year, they have to figure out the rates, rules, regulations and forms for every single city,” Mandel said. “We are the only state in America that does it that way.”

Mandel is finishing his first four-year term in office.
