Cost of Doing Business

The Buckeye State Advantage

Businesses find that it costs less to do business in Ohio than in many other Midwestern states. A report released by Ernst & Young LLP and the Council on State Taxation (COST) ranks Ohio among the top states for favorable business tax rates on new investments. Our strategic location and proximity to major markets reduces shipping time and rates and our lower hourly wages and competitive real estate options make Ohio a great alternative to many other regions.
