The Ohio Department of Taxation is cracking down on Ohio businesses and dental practices with unpaid sales and use tax. Are you ready if they come after you?
Generally, as a provider of personal services, your practice is exempt from Ohio sales tax. But – you must collect sales tax on products such as mouthwash, whiteners and toothbrushes that you sell to patients.
Ohio’s also changed how it handles tax on dental products such as Invisalign®. You might think that you’re in compliance when you’re not…which could cost you a fortune in back taxes, interest and penalties.
Make sure your dental practice complies with Ohio’s ever-changing sales and use tax regulations – and that you know what the changes mean for your practice. Your Rea dental services advisor will review your purchases to help ensure that your practice complies with Ohio tax regulations.
Sales & use tax laws differ by state. If your practice is not in Ohio or if you do business outside of Ohio, our team of state & local dental professionals can help.
Rea’s dental team works closely with our state and local tax team to ensure that you’re aware of new sales and use tax laws, helping you avoid potential interest and penalties. Just like you provide preventive care to your patients, our team’s proactive review of your sales and use tax exposure can help ensure the financial health of your practice and your paycheck.
