From KPMG TaxWatch
It’s a new year and Ohio is currently allowing delinquent taxpayers a new opportunity to come into compliance. Ohio’s tax amnesty program began on January 1, 2018 and will run through February 15, 2018. During the program, amnesty is available for “qualifying delinquent taxes,” which are defined as unreported and underreported taxes that were due and payable as of May 1, 2017. “Qualifying delinquent taxes" does not include any tax for which a notice of assessment or audit has been issued, for which a bill has been issued, or for which an audit has been conducted or is currently being conducted. Taxpayers that reported their tax obligation, but did not pay the tax owed are also not eligible to participate in the amnesty program. Eligible taxes include, but are not limited to, withholding taxes, sales and use taxes, commercial activity tax, and financial institutions tax. Qualifying taxpayers can receive a 50 percent abatement of interest and a full abatement of penalties. Please contact Dave Perry at 513-763-2402 with questions on Ohio’s current tax amnesty program.
