The Ohio Department of Taxation is required under Section 5 of Am. Sub. S.B. 314, 129th General Assembly and amended by Am. Sub. H.B. 64, 131st General Assembly, to calculate and certify the annual change in state sales tax revenue from specified industries related to travel and tourism. Tax Data Series Table S6Q, presented quarterly, assists in this requirement. The following table presents sales tax collections from select industries, for 1 quarter of fiscal year (FY) 2018, and 4 quarters from the preceding fiscal year.

State sales tax collections totaled approximately $264.4 million in the first quarter of FY 2018 in these categories. This compares to state sales tax collections which totaled approximately $258.3 million in the first quarter of FY 2017 and yields an approximate 2.4% increase.
