Lawsuit against Businesses Disallowed for Improper Collection ofOhioSales Tax
Businesses faced with the task of collectingOhiosales taxes have received some favorable news involving sales made inOhio. The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals recently held in Bergmoser v. Smart Document Solutions, LLCthat consumers may not successfully sue businesses to recover improperly collectedOhiosales taxes. Instead, where a business is unwilling or unable to provide a refund the consumer’s sole remedy is to apply for a refund from the state.
Bergmoser seems to indicate that a business may legally collect sales taxes from consumers in situations where the business is unsure about whether the underlying transaction is taxable.

Now once noticed by notary presentment, that would be a completely different suit. Once noticed and they continue an unlawful collection is a crime, or damages up to seven times. Paul Hansen7-16-2013]]]
