Reform needed for
municipal tax procedures
Iím encouraged to see that state lawmakers are making municipal income tax reform a top priority this legislative session. Ohio is the only state where each city and village makes its own rules and regulations on income tax. The burden on my fellow small business owners to comply with as many as 600 different sets of tax ordinances is troublesome. I hear from them that the tracking and submission of these taxes is also very confusing and burdensome. One set of municipal tax rules and regulations would do wonders to relieve time and money spent trying to make sense of all these rules.
Iím invested in my community. Iím more than willing to pay my fair share of taxes, but it sure would be nice to reduce administrative hassles and conflicting rules and penalties.
