A service of pcCoM Technologies • 101 Benton Street • Oak Harbor, OH 43449

Why localtaxinfo.org?: (Revised 12/18/2001)

Ohio House Bill 477 requires all Municipal Corporation's basic income tax information to be made available through the internet by January 1st, 2002.

Each Municipal Corporation has several options in order to comply with this new law:

1.) Incorporate the information on an existing web site.

2.) In accordance with ORC section 5703.49, the Ohio Department of Taxation is establishing an Internet site which a Municipal Corporation can access to post their tax information. This option will involve a fee that has yet to be established. If you are going to request that ODT posts your information, you must complete a FORMS PUBLISHING REQUEST and all documents must be submitted to the state in portable document format (.pdf) on CD-ROM, diskette or electronically by September 28th, 2001.

3.) Use a third party service to post the required information on the Internet

We have worked hard to be able to offer you an easy and affordable solution to posting your tax information on the internet. We are eager to work with those Municipal Corporations that may already have a site but need revisions made. We are able to assist you in making those revisions, posting the required information, and any other needed revisions to your site.

For those Municipalities that do not have an established web site, we have developed www.localtaxinfo.org. This service will allow you to have your own web page, placed on www.localtaxinfo.org, where you can post the required tax related information. This site is fully compliant with state requirements outlined in House Bill 477.


How do we get our information onto localtaxinfo.org?:

Step 1:
Determine what information you wish to post on the Internet You may need to consult your legal counsel for an opinion. Once you have determined which information you wish to post, we must take that information and convert it into a format that can be used on the web. If you have your information already in a Adobe® Acrobat® Reader format (.pdf) file, a Microsoft Word document (.doc file) or simply a text file (.txt) then you can proceed to Step 2! If not, you can simply send us your documents and we will take the necessary steps to convert the information into a suitable format.

Step 2:

We will post your information on your localtaxinfo.org web page. Visitors to your site can view information in any format(s) you choose: Adobe Acrobat; Microsoft Word or HTML. You do not have to worry about finding a "hosting service" for your web page. Your site will be listed on localtaxinfo.org under a sub-directory such as:
