Winter Storm and Tax Filings

Ohio Tax Commissioner William W. Wilkins stated that Department of Taxation (ODT) agents will be making allowances for business taxpayers that file returns on line but couldn’t because of power outages. Most of those taxpayers had sales tax returns due on December 23rd, the day the snow and ice storm hit many areas in Ohio.

Wilkins says if taxpayers couldn’t file because the electricity was out, ODT agents will waive late-filing penalties and still allow discounts for timely filing. Taxpayers will still be responsible for paying any interest due on late payments. Wilkins added that, if they haven’t already, taxpayers should file their returns and taxes as soon as they can.
