Ensure big corporations are paying their fair share.
Profitable corporations must share responsibility for protecting the public investments – education, infrastructure, and more – from which they benefit. The share of Ohio state and local taxes paid by businesses has fallen over the past generation, so Ohio families shoulder a greater percentage of the tax load. Ohio is one of only six states without a tax on corporate profits, which was phased out beginning in 2005. We need to restore that tax, without the old loopholes, together with a robust Commercial Activity Tax.
