The State of Ohio has announced a tax amnesty program that allows taxpayers to come forward and pay certain delinquent tax obligations under terms more favorable than usual.

The tax amnesty program

  • Runs from January 1 through February 15, 2018
  • Includes tax liabilities that were due and payable as of May 1, 2017

The Ohio Department of Taxation is authorized to forgive 100% of any penalties, and half of the interest that typically would be assessed on these tax liabilities.

Many types of Ohio taxes are eligible for this program, including

  • individual income tax
  • employer withholding tax
  • sales and use tax
  • commercial activity taxes
  • others
