Ohio Business Licenses

Ohio does not have a statewide basic business license. Businesses may need to register with the Secretary of State, or the Department of Taxation for commercial activity tax, sales tax or payroll taxes. The commercial activity tax is an annual tax imposed on the privilege of doing business in Ohio and it is required if your OH gross receipts are $150,000 or more. Professional and occupational licenses are administered by many different boards and agencies in Ohio. Cities and towns often have local licensing requirements.
