State and Permissive (Local) Sales & Use Tax Collections for Industries Related to Travel & Tourism, January 1, 2015 through June 30, 2015

The Ohio Department of Taxation is required under ORC Section 5739.36 to summarize and publish sales and use tax collections for industries related to travel and tourism, by industrial classification, for each preceding six month period. The following table covers tax collections for January 1, 2015 through June 30, 2015.

This table is revised both in format and content compared to S6 tables in the Tax Data Series for periods prior to July 1, 2014. The content of the table has been changed to agree with categories related to tourism as defined in Section 5, Am. Sub. S.B. 314, 129th General Assembly, as listed in table S6Q in the Tax Data Series.

The table includes all types of sales and use tax accounts, including “direct payment” and “consumer use” accounts in which the appropriate tax is paid directly by the purchaser, rather than the seller, to the state.

In the industries related to tourism listed here, and for the period January 1, 2015 through June 30, 2015, state and permissive (local) sales and use tax collections totaled approximately $549.7 million from a total of 23,472 entities.
