Do you owe back taxes in Ohio? Now is the time to file all Ohio back taxes and receive major savings during the Ohio Tax Amnesty period of January 1, 2018 – February 15, 2018.  Whether you’re self-employed, a small business or file an individual tax return, you may apply for Ohio tax amnesty which will waive all penalties and half the interest due from delinquent taxes.

At Ken-Mar Tax, our tax specialists will help you apply for Ohio tax amnesty.  Not all Ohio back taxes qualify for tax amnesty so rather than spend the time figuring it out on your own schedule an appointment with our enrolled agent, Ken Weinberg, who will give you a free consultation through January 25th in order to determine how Ken-Mar Tax can help you file all your state, local and IRS back taxes.

You Will Likely Qualify for Ohio Tax Amnesty If…

You have unreported or under-reported Ohio State taxes that were due and payable as of May 1, 2017. Unreported means you know you owe back tax but have not yet been contacted by the Ohio Department of Taxation. This is your chance to self-report, rather than wait for the State of Ohio to contact you, and avoid ALL penalties and HALF of your interest.

Not all taxes are eligible for Ohio Tax Amnesty, but we’ll go through your files and figure out which of your delinquent taxes will qualify for amnesty. Here’s a list of qualified taxes:

Ohio Tax Foregiveness

  • Individual Income Tax
  • Individual School District Income Tax
  • Employer Withholding Tax
  • Employer Withholding School District Income Tax
  • Pass-Through Entity Tax
  • Sales Tax
  • Use Tax
  • Commercial Activity Tax (CAT)
  • Financial Institutions Tax
  • Cigarette or Other Tobacco Products Tax
  • Alcoholic Beverage Taxes
“The Ohio Tax Amnesty is intended to help well-meaning taxpayers to make good on their obligations and it allows the State of Ohio to collect outstanding tax revenues to help keep tax rates low for everyone,” said Ohio Tax Commissioner Joe Testa.

Testa says similar amnesty programs in the past have resulted in millions of dollars of additional tax payments from thousands of participants. That money was funneled back into state and local government services benefiting all Ohio residents. The goal this year is to generate upwards of $20 million in tax revenue for the State of Ohio.
