Christmas card sales have dropped steadily in recent years. But card companies are using technology to try to keep the tradition alive.
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.
