What is the Commercial Activity Tax Voluntary Disclosure Program?

The Ohio Department of Taxation offers a Voluntary Disclosure Program, which allows taxpayers to come forward anonymously in order to become compliant with the commercial activity tax (CAT). Voluntarily disclosing information provides taxpayers with the opportunity to avoid penalties for failure to file and pay their CAT liabilities timely. In order to be eligible for the CAT Voluntary Disclosure Program, a taxpayer must enter into a CAT Voluntary Disclosure Agreement (VDA) prior to any contact from the Department, including audit, compliance, or criminal investigation programs.
