The Ohio Department of Taxation just announced that employers and payroll providers will soon be able to submit W-2 files to the Department of Taxation through the Ohio Business Gateway (OBG). Additionally, those that utilize the OBG will not be required to submit a separate Ohio IT 3. Unfortunately, 1099-R information will only be accepted via CD.
In the coming weeks the Ohio Department of Taxation will release additional information on this new feature and post a tutorial with step-by-step guidelines on how to complete a W-2 upload transaction through the OBG feature.
