Sales & Use Tax

Closing A Business

To cancel your vendor’s license you must indicate on the final UST 1, Monthly/semiannual sales tax return, by checking a box provided for that purpose and providing the closing date of the business. You may also cancel your vendor’s license electronically through the Ohio Business Gateway system at or by calling the Tele-file system at 1-800-697-0440. If your vendor’s license is a master cumulative account, please call 1-888-405-4039 to cancel your license.

However, if the business is an establishment that holds a liquor license, the vendor's license cannot be cancelled as long as the liquor license is active. The owner must contact the Ohio Department of Commerce, Division of Liquor Control, to ensure the proper procedures are followed for disposition of the license.
