Sales Tax Complaints

Complaints say some merchants still charging old tax rate

Some Ohio retailers are still charging customers the old, higher sales tax rate rather than the one that took effect July First.

The county auditor in Butler County says she's had numerous complaints from residents. The sales tax was supposed to go down by one-half of one percent, the result of a rollback in the state sales tax.

Auditor Kay Rogers says she has received about 40 complaints today, from Hamilton to Middletown, and that leads her to believe there likely are problems in other counties. State tax officials say only a scattering of complaints have been reported elsewhere.
