Severance Tax Electronic Filing

Severance Tax Electronic Filing

Beginning with the severance tax return (SV 3) for January 1, 2014 - March 31, 2014 (first quarter of 2014) which is due May 15, 2014, severance taxpayers are required to file electronically via the Ohio Business Gateway at www.business.ohio.gov.  The Ohio Business Gateway (OBG) offers electronic registration and filing tools for the Severance Tax, CAT, sales tax, employer withholding, unemployment compensation, workers' compensation, and municipal income taxes for nearly 500 cities and villages.  Electronic filing reduces paperwork and postage costs.  For state government, each electronic return saves processing costs and taxpayer dollars.
