Kilowatt Distributors, Self-Assessing Purchasers, Natural Gas Distributors  

Ohio levies a kilowatt-hour tax on electric distribution companies and self-assessing commercial or industrial purchasers of electricity, as well as a tax on natural gas distributors. Electric distribution companies remit tax due on the electricity they have distributed to an end user. Self-assessing commercial or industrial purchasers remit tax based on the kilowatt-hours received. Natural gas distributors remit tax based on the natural gas they distributed to an end user. 

NEW Electronic Filing Application - Effective June 1, 2015, all kilowatt-hour and natural gas distribution tax returns will be filed electronically through the Ohio Business Gateway (OBG). ACH debit payments can also be submitted via the OBG. ACH credit payments made through the Treasurer of Ohio’s payment system will continue to be accepted.
