I am a tax preparer and several of my clients have opted-in. Will I be able to upload their tax returns directly from the tax package I use, or will I need to key the information into the Ohio Business Gateway?

The Department has had discussions with a couple of commercial software vendors about building the upload capability in their professional-suite products. Subsequently, the Department has contacted the IRS about participating in Modernized eFiling for the municipal net profit return. This FAQ will be updated when more information is available.
