Tax Dispute Policy Changes In OH

Ohioans lost the right to appeal disputed tax decisions directly to the state’s high court, a scarcely debated policy change that critics say will have sweeping consequences for businesses, individuals and governments. The Ohio Supreme Court advocated for and defends the change, arguing it was necessary to lighten its docket of a flood of market-driven property tax disputes and to preserve its role as arbiter of the state’s most significant legal questions. The Board of Tax Appeals, which arbitrates local tax disagreements, issued 8,165 decisions in 2013, which placed such a burden on resources that the board launched an online filing system to handle the load.
