“When it comes to tax law, clarity is good for everybody – the tax collectors, the taxpayers and the attorneys who work hard to represent them.
“To that end, establishing a ‘bright line’ test for determining who is a resident of Ohio for tax purposes has been a top priority for the OSBA and our Taxation Law Committee.
“We are also pleased with an amendment that clarifies to which jurisdiction a taxpayer may file when appealing decisions of the Board of Tax Appeals now that direct appeal to the Ohio Supreme Court is no longer an option.
“Thank you to Representative Gary Scherer, Senate Ways and Means Committee Chairman John Eklund, and the members of the Senate for their good work on this legislation. We look forward to a quick House concurrence.”
