Municipal income tax meeting slated for Sept. 5 in Cleveland

Aug 16, 2012

Rep. Peter Beck, R-Mason, chair of the Ohio House Ways and Means Committee as well as a CPA and an OSCPA member, will hold a third “Municipal Income Tax Interested Party” meeting Sept. 5 at Cleveland State University. The event is open to the public, and concerned CPAs and business representatives are encouraged to attend to share their views. Numerous municipal representatives are expected to participate, as has been the case in prior meetings.

OSCPA is a major voice in the efforts to achieve needed change and has been working closely with Beck to communicate why reform is so critical for Ohio’s economic development efforts.

Beck held similar meetings earlier this summer in Columbus and the Cincinnati suburb of Sharonville. The objective is to help legislators and municipal leaders understand why Ohio’s current system is so burdensome for businesses and how it is a barrier to economic development in our state.

If you would like to attend this “roundtable” meeting to share your thoughts, please contact Amy Mignogna.

In a related matter, OSCPA met with partners of the Municipal Income Tax Uniformity Coalition last week to discuss points of common ground around legislation aimed at reform. OSCPA is working with legislative leaders to introduce a bill calling for municipal income tax uniformity later this year.
