    Dec 8, 2020

    Jesse has updated the OSU Extension Deposit Transmittal Form to reflect the NEW address to now mail DEVELOPMENT checks to:

    The Ohio State University Foundation,  PO Box 710811, Columbus, OH 43271-0811

    PLEASE NOTE: PUT THE FUND # ON EACH CHECK THAT IS BEING MAILED TO THIS ADDRESS to reduce errors. Papers are getting separated in this mailing process and deposits made to wrong funds as a result.
  2. Ohio Sales Tax Reporting

    Dec 8, 2020

    For reporting Sales Tax in 2021 please use the Business & Finance Sales Tax Reporting form and provide FUND FD111 and your Cost Center number.

    Send as soon as possible, even after the deadline by a few days if due to circumstances beyond your control, so B&F can get their reports submitted in a timely manner to avoid penalites and interest if ever an audit.

  3. Legacy Resources for eReports

    Dec 8, 2020

    A file should be maintained (can be all digital) for each month that includes your 3os-61,4os-91,7os-91 and fund exception report, as well as the signed/reviewed checklist (linked below).

    You do not need to maintain copies of actual transactions that show up on the detail activity report. All auditable documentation is already attached in  our e-systems for PO’s, Vouchers, eRequests and eTravel. You simply need to check-off all the transactions on the 4os-91 as recognized, and make notes on requested corrections as necessary.

  7. NELNET (credit card payment gateway platform)

    Sep 24, 2020

    Jesse Buxton, Fiscal Officer, Extension Operations, has worked with the Treasurer’s Office to roll out the new NelNet payment platform for all county offices to accept credit card payments. This gateway is very flexible, and can handle payments for goods and services; including many of the registration payments we have historically funneled through CVENT (and things we wanted to use CVENT for that our contract limitations kept us from accomplishing).
