Ohio Municipal Income Tax Uniformity Bill introduced in the General Assembly
On January 30, 2013, Ohio House Assistant Majority Whip Cheryl Grossman (R-Grove City) and Representative Michael Henne (R-Clayton) introduced new and improved legislation to streamline Ohio's municipal income tax system. House Bill ("H.B.") 5 was introduced in the 130th General Assembly after H.B. 601 died during the last General Assembly and was not acted upon during the lame duck session. H.B. 601 proposed similar changes to make Ohio's municipal income tax system uniform, but the new bill has some important differences intended to make the bill more appealing to municipalities.
