Ohio SST Membership Nod: A Very Tasty Carrot Indeed!

In a previous post (Streamlined Sales Tax: Will Ohio Go For $20 Million Carrot?) we talked about an Executive Order that Ohio Governor John Kasich issued to the state’s Department of Revenue requiring them to take all necessary steps to bring the state to Full Membership with the Streamlined Sales Tax Project.  Well, guess what??  Ohio SST membership has been given an official nod!

On August 9, 2013, Ohio filed a petition with the Streamlined Sales Tax Governing Board seeking Full Membership status.  A copy of the petition and public comment can be found on the SST website if you wish to review.

Not wasting any time, SST immediately routed the petition to the Compliance Review and Interpretations Committee (“CRIC”) who considered the measure on September 5, 2013, when the committee last met.  And…  Good news!!!

CRIC voted that the State of Ohio is in compliance with the SSUTA and their petition for Full Membership may now be considered by the SST Governing Board.  The Governing Board will hear commentary and then vote on the petition during their next scheduled meeting to be held Madison, WI on October 29 – 30, 2013.

If the measure passes, Ohio’s Full Member status with SST would take effect January 1, 2014.

So, job well done Ohio!  Sounds like that $20 million carrot was just what was needed and some of that lost revenue may be hitting your coffers soon.

Author Update 11/6/2013 - On October 29, 2013, the Streamlined Sales Tax Governing  Board unanimously approved Ohio's petition for Full Membership.  Ohio will become a Full Member to the Agreement effective January 1, 2014.
