State Taxation Departments are in the "PANIC MODE"!

The Truth about the State-of-Ohio Sales & Use Tax 
The more Use-Tax that Ohioans volunteer, to the State-of-Ohio, the less
 the State-of-Ohio will be concerned, with the loss of the Ohio Retailers!
The State-of-Ohio HAS IGNORED ITS OWN OHIO RETAILERS FOR 64 YEARS.
 OHIO LEGISLATORS SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES!

The following letter was sent Jan 12, 2001 to:
 Bob Taft, Governor, State of Ohio
Thomas Zanino, Tax Commissioner, State of Ohio
All 33 State of Ohio Senators
All 99 State of Ohio House Representatives

The truth about the State of Ohio, and its Sales and Use-Tax Laws   

Ohio Revised Code, 5739 (Sales Tax) and, 5741 (Use Tax) were put into Law in Ohio in 1936.

Through the State of Ohio Legislators, who make the Laws, and the various Tax Departments who
interpret those laws, the State of Ohio raises Billions of dollars of Revenue (for the State) in order
to have additional needed revenues, to help provide the services, to its Residents, who live in the State of Ohio.

The original intention, in 1936, of the two different laws, were to raise revenues for the State of Ohio Tax Department, by forcing the consumer to pay the tax, at the time of sale (referred to the point-of-sale) within the State of Ohio using O.R.C. 5739 by requiring the Seller to charge and collect the tax.

The State of Ohio cannot impose its laws of tax collection onto business who operate outside of the State of Ohio, therefore, O.R.C. 5741 (the Use-Tax) required the consumer to pay to the State of Ohio the Ohio taxes that were not paid. This payment, by the Ohio consumer, of the Ohio Tax, to the State of Ohio, would also serve to protect the Ohio Retailer from being put into an unfair position with its Ohio consumers, because of the added cost , of the tax.

The State of Ohio, recognized in 1936, that the Use-Tax was necessary, to protect from unfair price
differences, AND THAT WAS WHEN THE SALES-TAX WAS ONLY, ONE-HALF OF ONE PERCENT.  The Sales-Tax (in Cuyahoga County), is NOW FOURTEEN TIMES the original Sales-Tax Rate!

The State of Ohio Legislators, and the State of Ohio Taxation Department, have
been IRRESPONSIBLE, in their OBLIGATIONS to maintain FAIR TAX LAWS.
While it was easy to mandate new Sales-Tax Laws that could be applied to the Ohio Businesses
and force them to be the Tax-Collector, the State of Ohio Legislators and Tax Department were
impotent in applying the same BALANCED TAXATION TO RETAILERS OUTSIDE OF OHIO.

As changes in technology, made it easier for the consumer to make purchases (outside of Ohio), the 
State of Ohio CONTINUED TO IGNORE THE UNFAIR PRESSURES THAT ITS OWN OHIO RETAILERS
WERE HAVING, as the Sales-Tax Rates kept increasing making them more non-competitive. The
Ohio consumer has been granted, through technology development, the opportunity to become an 
educated shopper who only seeks: LOWEST PRICE, FREE SHIPPING, AND NO TAX!

The State of Ohio Taxation Department IS IN THE PANIC MODE!
Why has this only now hit the newspapers, radio and TV in the year 2001 when these laws were made law in 1936? It's simple - Ohio Sales-Tax Revenues are dropping, just like the Ohio Retailers are dropping, BECAUSE THE STATE OF OHIO IGNORED THE PROBLEM OF FAIR TAXATION FOR 64 YEARS!

Look at the Sales-Tax and Use-Tax Laws on the State of Ohio, Legislative, Ohio Revised Code
Website. THERE ARE 63 PAGES OF SALES-TAX LAWS AND 15 PAGES OF USE-TAX LAWS!  The Legislators/Tax Department has complicated the laws so much, no one understands them.  Most of these Laws keep the Ohio Retailer NON-COMPETITIVE, and are unable to be enforced with retailers, out of the State of Ohio. The State of Ohio wants the Federal Government to FIX A PROBLEM THAT THE STATE OF OHIO CREATED. Why? The Federal Government IS NOT GOING TO FIX A PROBLEM THAT IT DID NOT CREATE.. OHIO GOVERNMENT DOES NOT BELIEVE IN FAIR TAXATION. THE PROBLEM IS SO BIG, THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT.

THE SOLUTION: IT'S TOO SIMPLE.. ELIMINATE ALL SALES and USE TAXES, including the County Piggy-Back Sales-Taxes, IMMEDIATELY BY EMERGENCY ACTION. Replace that needed Ohio Revenue by increasing the State Income Tax. The State of Ohio would no longer need all those people, who work for the Sales and Use-Tax Department, eliminate 78 pages of Taxation Laws that only waste Taxpayers monies when the State tries to enforce those laws by using expensive attorneys, and the courts, and finally, take away that unfair taxation difference for the Ohio Retailer trying to be competitive with its own local Ohio consumer. DON'T CONTINUE TO BE UNFAIR!
