Some Ohio Businesses Get Surprise Tax Return
Ohio tax officials are starting to return more than $13 million to more than 3,000 Ohio companies that unknowingly overpaid their commercial activity tax.
Gov. John Kasich says thatâ€™s a reversal of earlier policies at the Ohio Department of Taxation, which knew about cases of over-payments but never informed the businesses.
“That’s just a rip-off,” Kasich said. “There’s no other way to describe it but a governmental rip-off.”
The governor says this policy change symbolizes what he calls a more jobs-friendly climate in Ohio.
He says many of the companies receiving surprise refunds are small businesses that might be able to use the bonanza to help hire new workers.
