COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – A new municipal income-tax law designed to simplify tax preparation in the state is in effect in Ohio.
The legislation that went into effect Jan. 1 establishes a uniform tax base that applies to all municipalities that levy an income tax.
The Columbus Dispatch reports that the law defines the income that municipalities may and may not tax, with a few exceptions. It also changes the municipal income-tax withholding deadline for monthly and quarterly filers to the 15th of the month.
Many municipalities previously had allowed a deadline of the end of the month.
