OUR THOUGHTS ON:

Ohio CAT Exclusion Change

State and Local Tax

By Mark Rossetti

With the passage of H.B. 508, Ohio has changed the way taxpayers account for the $1 million dollar exclusion. In the past, taxpayers took $250,000 of the exclusion each quarter and carried forward any unused portion for up to three future quarters. The new methodology forces the taxpayer to use the full $1 million dollar exclusion in the first quarter and carry forward the unused portion to the remaining three calendar quarters. This administrative change eliminates the ability to use more than $1 million of exclusion in the same calendar year.

If you happen to be a taxpayer that was a calendar-year filer and you breach $1 million dollars in Ohio gross receipts, you must take the full $1 million dollar exclusion on the first quarterly return filed. You may however carry forward the unused portion to the other quarters within the same calendar year.

The change does not take effect until January 1, 2013. Any exclusion amounts carried forward to 2012 from calendar year 2011 must be used prior to 2013.
