Ohio Rebate Information
Please note that participating organizations located in Ohio have different rebates than are available in other states due to the Ohio Commercial Activity Tax, affecting all companies doing business in the state of Ohio. This is a 0.26% tax of gross receipts (total sales), and it applies to all business transactions in the state of Ohio, including your gift card purchases from us. We have consulted with a large national accounting firm to determine whether this tax applied to our sales, and they do.
Because of the Ohio Commercial Activity Tax we have had to reduce rebates for our Ohio organizations by the amount needed to cover the estimated cost of the tax. This reduction is 0.26% of the face value of each gift card, eGift card, or reload. For example, the rebate on a card that is normally 10% will be 9.74% for Ohio organizations. The actual rebates available in Ohio will be reflected on ShopWithScrip.com when you are logged in to an account linked to an organization located in Ohio, and all reporting and packing slips will reflect the actual rebates earned. If this tax is discontinued, we will discontinue the rebate reduction as well.
