State of Ohio New Gateway Requirement for Employers

Many businesses have been receiving a post card from the State of Ohio Department of Taxation notifying them of the new requirement to file employer withholding returns on the Ohio Business Gateway, which includes remitting the payment electronically.  This rule is in effect for any returns filed after January 1, 2015 and as such is impacting the filing of these returns for the 4th quarter of 2014 that are due on January 31, 2015.

For businesses already familiar with the Ohio Business Gateway the process is straightforward.  For any small businesses that have not had to file through the Gateway yet though, an online account will need to be setup.  This process could take a day or so to be validated, so it's important to not wait until the last day of January to file your payroll returns, even though that is technically the due date.

If you have any questions regarding this, or problems connecting through the Gateway, please give us a call. 

Thank you for your continued confidence and referrals - we always appreciate them.

Jim Justus,

Account Manager
