5751.05 Election as calendar year taxpayer.

(A) If a person subject to this chapter anticipates that the person's taxable gross receipts will be more than one million dollars in a calendar year, the person shall notify the tax commissioner on the person's initial registration form and file on a quarterly basis as a calendar quarter taxpayer. Any taxpayer with taxable gross receipts of one million dollars or less shall register as a calendar year taxpayer and shall file annually.

(B) Any person that is a calendar year taxpayer under division (A) of this section shall become a calendar quarter taxpayer in the subsequent calendar year if the person's taxable gross receipts for the prior calendar year are more than one million dollars, and shall remain a calendar quarter taxpayer until the person notifies the commissioner, and receives approval in writing from the commissioner, to switch back to being a calendar year taxpayer.

(C) The commissioner may grant written approval for a calendar quarter taxpayer to use an alternative reporting schedule or estimate the amount of tax due for a calendar quarter if the taxpayer demonstrates to the commissioner the need for such a deviation. The commissioner may adopt a rule to apply division (C) of this section to a group of taxpayers without the taxpayers having to receive written approval from the commissioner.
