How do I dissolve a corporation with Ohio?

You should obtain a dissolution packet from the Ohio Secretary of State's office. That office handles the dissolution process.

You can download the packet from their Web site at:

If you need to speak to someone in that office, the phone number is (877) 767-3453 or (614) 466-3910.

In addition, it is necessary for all corporations that are dissolving or surrendering their license (Non-Profit included) to complete form D5 Notification of Dissolution or Surrender. The D5 should be mailed to the address on that form.
