Ohio - LOCAL DIRECTORY GUIDE
In 1803 Ohio, or the “Buckeye State,” became the first state west of the Appalachian mountains. The traffic light, pop-top can, cash register and hot dog were all invented in Ohio, which is rich in Midwestern friendliness but flavored with an Eastern can-do attitude. It’s home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Ohio State University and eight Presidents. The state’s largest city and capital is Columbus. Approximately 50% of the U.S. population lives within 500 miles of Columbus, giving rise to the state slogan, “The Heart of it All.”
Bullion Sales Tax in Ohio
Within Ohio, sales tax is applied to all purchases of coins, paper currency, and Precious Metals without exception. Ohio previously offered a sales tax exemption for investment coins and bullion, but it was repealed some time ago. Bills have been proposed recently to reinstate the exemption, but none have gained the favor of lawmakers. The state sales tax rate is 5.75% at this time, but local taxes may also apply.
