Ohio House agrees to tax amnesty

The Ohio House of Representatives has passed legislation granting a three-month amnesty to Ohioans who are delinquent in paying state taxes and fees.


The amnesty would run from Jan. 1 to March 30, and delinquent taxpayers could pay their bill without any interest or penalties.

Under House Bill 609, the state would send revenue to its rainy day fund, formally known as the Budget Stabilization Fund (BSF), rather than the General Revenue Fund (GRF). However, it also includes a provision to disperse funds that would have gone to the Local Government Fund (LGF) and Public Library Fund (PLF) via the GRF to those funds.

    The bill would run an amnesty program from Jan. 1 to March 31, 2021, during which Ohio taxpayers (biz and individual) could pay any unreported or underreported taxes without incurring penalties or interest, as long as those taxes aren't under audit or have been issued a notice of assessment
