Tax Structure Study Committee to Hold Public Hearing at UT
COLUMBUS—State Representative Barbara Sears (R-Monclova) today announced that the Ohio House’s bipartisan Tax Structure Study Committee will be holding a public hearing on Monday, September 12th at the University of Toledo.
The hearing will be held at 11 a.m. at the Scott Park Campus Auditorium, located at 2225 Nebraska Avenue in Toledo. It will serve to give the people of Ohio an opportunity to speak to the Ohio House of Representatives on the state’s tax climate. Specifically, the forum will cover three areas of the tax code: the commercial activity tax, the sales and use tax, and tax expenditures.
“I appreciate that the Tax Study Committee has prioritized northwest Ohio and is holding a hearing in Toledo,” Rep. Sears said. “The committee’s purpose highlights that we are taking our mission seriously of reviewing state revenue and expenditures, and ensuring that they are collected and spent appropriately. Ultimately, ensuring that the tax code works for Ohioans also ensures that government doesn’t impede businesses from creating jobs.”
Upon completing the necessary research, the committee intends to put forth an executive summary and possible recommendations for the Legislature. Rep. Sears encourages all residents of Toledo and Lucas County who are interested in voicing their opinions on Ohio’s tax structure to attend this hearing.
