About the Gateway

The Ohio Business Gateway is a nationally-recognized, collaborative initiative of state and local government agencies and an important part of Ohio's digital government strategy. Gateway 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 the Gateway to access various services and submit transactions and payments with many state agencies. The Gateway 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, the Gateway 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, the Gateway directly benefits government by helping to reduce administrative costs and improve quality, lowering barriers to develop on-line applications, and providing significant exposure to the Gateway's growing number of business users.
