Grocers Challenge State Tax on Food

CLEVELAND (CN) - Ohio unconstitutionally collects a "commercial activities tax" on wholesale and retail sales of food, a wholesaler and a retailer say in a class action in Cuyahoga County Court. They claim the Ohio 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals last year voided the tax the state has collected since 2005.

The commercial activities tax amounts to $150 for the first $1 million of annual taxable gross receipts, plus $0.0026 cents per dollar on taxable gross receipts thereafter.

Plaintiffs are represented by Patrick Perotti of Dworken & Bernstein of Painesville, Ohio.
