Budget Bill Brings Major Bingo Changes for Veteran and Fraternal Organizations and a Tax Credit Program
Ohio's new biennial budget permits electronic instant bingo, or e-bingo, for qualifying organizations in 2022. The budget also includes a provision that allows taxpayers to claim a tax credit of up to $750 per year for contributions to qualifying scholarship granting 501(c)(3) organizations.

Rule Change Requires Electronic Payment for Registration Fees
In our continuing effort to promote accountability and transparency within the charitable sector, the Ohio Attorney General’s Office has switched to an online payment only system. As of September 17, 2020, we no longer accept paper checks as payment for charitable registration fees and late fees. All payments must be made by credit card or e-check on our website through our secure payment portal. An e-check, or electronic check, is a digital version of a paper check. There are no additional fees when paying online. For more information, see https://charitable.ohioago.gov/Registration-Fee-Rule-Change.
