OBG Electronic Filing is a nationally-recognized, collaborative initiative of state and local government agencies and an important part of Ohio's digital government strategy. OBG Electronic Filing services offer Ohio's businesses a time- and money-saving online filing and payment system that helps simplify business' relationship with government agencies.
Ohio businesses can use OBG to access various services and electronically submit transactions and payments with many state agencies. OBG Electronic Filing also partners with local governments to enable businesses to file and pay selected Ohio municipal income taxes.
By offering a single website for electronic filing, OBG Electronic Filing provides businesses with an easier means to comply with multiple regulatory requirements, and it reduces or eliminates the postage expenses, repetitious data entry, mathematical mistakes, and potential for overlooking required data that typically accompany paper-based methods. Furthermore, OBG Electronic Filing directly benefits government by helping to reduce administrative costs and improve quality, lowering barriers to develop on-line applications, and providing significant exposure to OBG Electronic Filing's growing number of business users.
For assistance by phone, call the OBG Electronic Filing Help Desk at 866-OHIO-GOV (866-644-6468). The Help Desk is available Monday through Friday 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., excluding state holidays, and provides access to qualified representatives from each agency who are authorized to assist with electronic filing and agency-related questions.
