At the beginning of the pandemic, an Ohio High Court allowed to tax remote workers violates due process protections. The law falls under the U.S. and Ohio constitutions and includes cities like Cincinnati.
As The Buckeye Institute senior litigator and Schaad attorney Jay R. Carson said: “Not only has the city of Cincinnati completely ignored Schaad’s due process rights, but it ignored the Ohio Constitution’s provision, which allows the General Assembly to limit, not expand, municipal taxing authority.”
In short, he criticizes Cincinnati’s argument that the law expanding municipal taxing beyond the city’s jurisdiction was a limitation on the city’s authority.
Back in 2020, the state General Assembly passed H.B. 197. So, the law imposed different costs to employees working from home. The debate on taxing remote workers violates due process protections, a sign of a growing demand to regulate work from home.
