State Representative Brian Hill (R-Zanesville) has announced that the bipartisan Tax Structure Study Committee—which strives to facilitate a public discussion on how to improve Ohio’s tax policies to further economic development—today held a regional meeting in Zanesville.
The committee is designed to give Ohioans an opportunity to discuss the state’s tax climate with members of the Ohio House of Representatives.
“I am thrilled with the amount of interest the people of the 94th House District showed toward reforming Ohio’s tax policies,” said Rep. Hill, who serves on the committee. “I appreciate everyone who came out and offered their ideas to the committee. I look forward to using the testimony provided at these meetings to help bring forth much needed tax changes that will help create jobs and grow Ohio’s economy.”
The committee focuses on three specific areas of the tax code: the commercial activity tax, the sales and use tax, and tax expenditures. Upon completing the necessary research, the committee intends to put forth an executive summary and possible recommendations for the Legislature.
The final tax study committee meeting will be held at the Statehouse in Columbus on Thursday, September 22nd at 10 a.m.
