Ohio residents please note the following: On July 19, 2005, a US District Judge declared Ohio's previous law prohibiting interstate wine shipments to be unconstitutional. At that time, it became legal for a winery to ship unlimited amounts of wine to Ohio consumers via common carrier. One provision of this decision is that local residents must file an Ohio Excise and Use Tax Filing along with the required payment of tax for every shipment. As the form states; all taxes due to the state of Ohio are required to be paid within 30 days of the receipt of your shipment.
