Ohio’s tax reform offers the lowest new capital investment tax structure in the Midwest. Companies won’t be taxed for investing in capital improvements necessary to be competitive, modernize manufacturing lines, or invest in machinery and equipment. Ohio's new tax structure eliminates Ohio’s corporate franchise, or “profits-based” tax; it eliminates the tangible personal property tax on machinery and equipment, inventory, and furniture and fixtures; and it reduces personal income tax.
