How do I register for FIT?

Taxpayers can register for the FIT through the Ohio Business Gateway (OBG). Taxpayers are required to register under the reporting person and list all of the consolidated members. Once the reporting person has registered with OBG, a FIT account number will be assigned to the reporting person. Additionally, taxpayers must be registered before filing any reports including the estimated tax payment report.
