Akron State Representative Lynn Slaby is looking for opinions from businesses, residents and governments in Ohio concerning the the tax structure.
Slaby is a member of the Tax Structure Study Committee, which will meet Friday morning beginning at 10:30 at the Martin Center on the University of Akron campus.
The Tax Structure Committee has been meeting around the state of Ohio gathering opinions on the Tax Code in Ohio. The goal of the committee is to sit down and write a bill that would streamline the tax structure.
Slaby says there are three areas that the committee will examine. First is the 'CAT' tax, or Commercial Activities Tax. Second, is the sales and use taxes. Third, is how tax expenditures are spent.
Meetings have already been held in Columbus, Dayton and Toledo. Next Monday, a meeting will be held in Zanesville before shifting back to Columbus.
The 11-member committee is made up of 7 Republicans of the Ohio House of Representatives and 4 Democrats.
