In a move that will save the state $1.2 million, Ohio will stop mailing state tax forms and instruction booklets starting next year. The Ohio Department of Taxation had already cut back on mailings by sending forms only to those who filed their taxes by mail the previous year.
Next year, taxpayers who mailed their 2010 returns will receive postcards with options for obtaining booklets and forms. The materials will, as always, be available at banks, libraries, and post offices. They will also be available for download from the agency’s website and by mail for people who request paper copies.
