Movement to Eliminate Ohio’s Estate Tax is Under Way

The Ohio chapter of Americans for Prosperity is pushing forward with its proposal to repeal Ohio’s estate tax. Ohio assesses a tax on residents’ estates valued at $338,333 or more. The group successfully certified its petition with the Ohio Attorney General’s office and the Ohio Ballot Board. The group now needs to collect 120,683 valid signatures of registered Ohio voters by the end of the year to have the legislature consider its proposal.

If you are an opponent of the Ohio estate tax, you may want to contact the Ohio chapter of Americans for Prosperity to sign the petition and/or to volunteer to circulate the petition.
