Friday, August 30, 2013 6:16 PM


COLUMBUS – The state sales tax rate on the storage, use or other consumption of tangible personal property or services and retail sales made on or after Sept. 1, 2013 is 5.75 percent. The previous rate was 5.5 percent.

All local Ohio jurisdictions impose a local sales and use tax in addition to the state rate.

Most counties in northwest Ohio, including Paulding County, will have a tax rate of 7.25 percent. Exceptions are Defiance, Wood, Hancock and Allen counties (6.75 percent) and Lucas County (7.0 percent).

The Ohio Department of Taxation provides a database of sales and use tax rates called the Finder, which can be queried either by address or by ZIP code. The Finder is available at this link:
