The Ohio Department of Taxation (ODT) posted its initial county-by-county certifications for the Public Library Fund (PLF) for calendar year (CY) 2021. Each county’s estimated entitlement is available on the OLC website. A spreadsheet of the month-by-month estimates for each county is also available below.
CY21 PLF Estimate by County (Excel file)
Please read the information carefully. The CY 2021 entitlement estimates are based on the PLF percentage being set at 1.7% of the state General Revenue Fund (GRF) for fiscal year (FY) 2021 which ends on June 30, 2021. Therefore, the CY 2021 estimates were calculated with the PLF at 1.7% (temporary law) for Jan.-June and at 1.66% (permanent law) for July-December. ODT’s initial statewide PLF distribution estimate for CY21 is $367,373,829, which is $15.2 million less than the latest estimate for CY20. As required by law, these estimates will be updated again in December 2020.
