Ohio vs. Kentucky: A local tax burden comparison

Written on May 1, 2020

While Ohio and Kentucky aren’t the only states with city and county taxes on business income, they do have far more taxing districts.

“Ohio has more than 600 localities that tax the net profits of a business operating there,” writes Suzanne Danks, CPA in the September/October issue of CPA Voice. “Kentucky has more than 200 localities between city and county taxing districts with occupational licensing fees.”

Danks writes that these numbers don’t include the income taxes that have to be withheld for employees working in a municipality with a tax on wages.

“Business owners have to track their activities by city and county and work with their tax preparer to get registered in the locality and then file the necessary payroll and net profit returns,” she said.
