Requests for Data

On an annual basis, the Ohio Department of Taxation (ODT) asks local governments to complete surveys designed to gather data for several different types of taxes, including property, municipal income, lodging and the distribution of local government funds and public library funds.

The department routinely sends these surveys directly to the local government offices, either by electronic mail or through the United States Postal Service. A listing of all current surveys is available below for ease of reference.

When submitting survey data, electronic media is preferred such as in the form of a spreadsheet or text document. This ensures accuracy and helps to make the process of publishing more efficient.

Prior to returning the surveys, ODT asks that local officials provide a current e-mail address with the completed document. The department uses this information during data analysis and to cut down on postage costs in the future. (During calendar year 2015, the department is investigating electronic survey packages for future use. The new procedure will reduce inefficiencies and costs associated with data collection.)

If needed, ODT contact information is shown on each form to assist with any questions or concerns.
