The Ohio Department of Taxation recognizes the value of better informing the public about Departmental operations and Ohio tax laws and the organization demonstrates this by providing speakers for public, civic, school or other types of group events. If you would like to request a speaker for an upcoming event, please submit the requested information below at least 45 days in advance of the anticipated presentation date. You will be notified within 10 days of your submission regarding the status of your request. Unfortunately, resource limitations prevent the Department from honoring all requests. However, the Department routinely conducts free online presentations via the Ohio Virtual Tax Academy (OVTA). To learn more about upcoming events in which you may be interested, please sign up to receive tax alerts at Ohio Department of Taxation Tax Alerts .
