Forms for Use by Local Officials

The Ohio Department of Taxation has established a number of forms for use by local officials in reporting information to the department. Most of these forms should be available at the links below.

Fund Transfer

Ohio’s most recent biennial budget, Am. Sub. House Bill 49, enacted a change to Ohio Revised Code section 5705.16, which contains the process for requesting the transfer of funds authorized by ORC section 5705.15-.16.  These changes, effective October 1, 2017, transfer from the court of common pleas to the tax commissioner responsibility for determining that the petition states sufficient facts, good reason or necessity exists for the transfer, and no injury will result from the transfer. Additionally, requirements for giving public notice are lifted.

As with prior law, the tax commissioner must respond in ten days. To expedite the petition evaluation, petitioners must submit the Transfer Request Form.

Please note, legislative authority alone is sufficient for some transfers. For example, money may be transferred from the general fund to any other fund of the subdivision or the unexpended balance in a bond fund can be transferred to the sinking fund or bond retirement fund from which such bonds are payable without the consent of the tax commissioner. See ORC section 5705.14 for a list of transfers that do not require tax commissioner approval.
