State Representative Gary Scherer (R-Circleville) has announced that next week’s House Tax Reform Legislative Study Committee will cover all tax issues except House Bill 5.

The hearing will be held Tuesday, September 17th at the Ohio Statehouse, Room 313, at 1 p.m.

“We have had great success hearing from our constituents from around the state on a variety of tax issues during the meetings of the Tax Reform Study Committee.” Scherer said. “We want to keep that momentum going, and give the residents of Central Ohio that same opportunity.”

Testimony related to the provisions in House Bill 5 will not be accepted because that legislation is currently being handled through the House Ways & Means Committee.

Anyone wishing to offer testimony should submit a written version of the testimony to Alex Goodman at (614)644-7928 or by September 16th at noon. Due to the limited time available for testimony, Chairman Scherer asks that it is limited to five minutes per presentation to allow adequate time for questions and conversation.
