Ohio Sales and Use Tax Lawyers

tax-litigationJames E. Arnold & Associates, LPA, is a Columbus, Ohio law firm that also serves the Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Dayton areas. We focus on trial practice for both individuals and corporate clients, in both state and federal courts, including sales and use tax cases.

Sales and use tax issues of interest to our clients typically include one or more of the following:

  • Responsible officer assessment issues: Determining who the responsible officer of a corporation is and what his or her tax liability is can have significant consequences.
  • Employment services: A special portion of sales taxes is collected by the state for services related to temporarily placed employees. Sales taxes do not apply when employees have been permanently placed.
  • Assessment of use tax: In the words of Ohio taxation government website http://www.tax.ohio.gov “The Ohio sales and use tax applies to the retail sale, lease, and rental of tangible personal property as well as the sale of selected services in Ohio. In transactions where sales tax was due but not collected by the vendor or seller, a use tax of equal amount is due from the customer.”
  • Internet purchases and taxation: Especially consumers, and also many vendors, do not seem to understand that they can be held accountable for sales taxes covering all online purchases and sales. The state of Ohio has been increasing collection efforts targeting use taxes due from purchasers of Internet goods and services.
