Estates of individuals with a date of death on or after January 1, 2013: the department no longer requires a tax release or a tax waiver form before certain assets of a decedent may be transferred to another person. The Ohio Department of Taxation requests that counties and county auditors, as well as banks and financial institutions, no longer process and/or submit these forms to the Ohio Department of Taxation.
