Ohio Repeals Sales Tax on Staffing Services

After years of effort by ASA, the Ohio Staffing & Search Association (an ASA-affiliated chapter), and allies in the Ohio Chamber of Commerce, the Ohio legislature quietly and without public fanfare repealed the state sales tax on employment services. The repeal provision, which was part of a massive state budget bill, was signed into law by Gov. Mike DeWine on June 30. The repeal becomes effective on the 91st day following enactment.

Special thanks to Tom Erb and Larry Kidd, longtime ASA members and industry leaders in Ohio, who spearheaded the final push that resulted in the win. ASA has long argued that, by increasing the cost of staffing services, the tax had an adverse effect on jobs and a negative ripple effect throughout the state economy. The influx of money flowing to the state from the American Rescue Plan Act, which Congress passed earlier this year, is believed to have mitigated lawmakers’ concerns about the loss of tax revenue that historically has been an obstacle to repeal.
