Regarding the passage of House Bill 292 in the Ohio House today, all of the following may be attributed to Todd Book, Director of Policy and Government Affairs for the Ohio State Bar Association (OSBA):
“The OSBA applauds the Ohio House of Representatives for taking an important step to restore clarity to Ohio tax law and provide a more definitive framework to follow when determining Ohio residency for income tax purposes.
“We are grateful for the leadership of Representative Gary Scherer, who worked closely with the members of the OSBA Taxation Law Committee, the Ohio CPAs, and the Ohio Department of Taxation to formulate this important legislation, and stand ready to work with the Ohio Senate to see it passed and signed into law.”
The Ohio State Bar Association, founded in 1880, is a voluntary association representing approximately 28,000 members of the bench and bar of Ohio. Through its activities and the activities of its related organizations, the OSBA serves both its members and the public by promoting the highest standards in the practice of law and the administration of justice.
