Ohio Gubernatorial candidate Mary Taylor promised an overhaul of the state’s tax system if elected, reports the Toledo Blade. The candidate and current Lieutenant Governor spoke at the Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce and indicated her desire to shorten the tax form and emphasize a customer-friendly attitude.

“I am, of course, well aware that many taxes are now filed electronically, but that does not change the importance of this effort,” said Taylor according to the Toledo Blade. “Simplifying the filing requirements and reducing the burden on taxpayers is just as vital for electronic filers as for paper filers.”

During her speech, Taylor cited NFIB research showing that simplifying the Ohio tax code was listed as the third-highest priority for members in the state. Taylor also indicated her desire to create a Taxpayer Advocacy Office to promote fairness for taxpayers.

During her speech, Taylor highlighted her accomplishments as Lieutenant Governor alongside Gov. Kasich, including reducing taxes by $5 billion, eliminating the estate tax, and eliminating income taxes, reports the Toledo Blade.

Taylor is one of four Republican candidates seeking the nomination for Governor alongside Rep. Jim Renacci, Attorney General Mike DeWine, and Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted.
