Forms for Use by Local Officials
The Ohio Department of Taxation has established a number of forms for use by local officials in reporting information to the department. Most of these forms should be available at the links below.
As with prior law, the tax commissioner must respond in ten days. To expedite the petition evaluation, petitioners must submit the Transfer Request Form.
Please note, legislative authority alone is sufficient for some transfers. For example, money may be transferred from the general fund to any other fund of the subdivision or the unexpended balance in a bond fund can be transferred to the sinking fund or bond retirement fund from which such bonds are payable without the consent of the tax commissioner. See ORC section 5705.14 for a list of transfers that do not require tax commissioner approval.

Traffic Enforcement Camera Reporting
Any local authority that operated or contracted with another party to operate traffic enforcement cameras during the preceding fiscal year must file the following report with the Department of Taxation on or before July 31st of each year. “Local authority” includes any municipal corporation, county, or township. Failure to provide the report in a timely manner will affect the local authority’s eligibility for local government funds. See R.C. 5747.502.
Please note the traffic camera amounts certified on July 31, 2019 would first be applied to the next certification process on July 25, 2020 (R.C. 5747.01) meaning the LGF allocations for Fiscal Year 2020 (July 2019-June 2020) will not be impacted by 5747.502(C).
