The Attorney General’s office has made a change to payment options for the charitable sector. Effective September 17, 2020, paper checks will no longer be accepted as payment for charitable registration fees and late fees. All payments must now be made by credit card or e-check on the website through secure payment portal.
Elimination of payment via mailed checks will increase the efficiency of processing payment, reduce paper waste and allow staff to be able to spend more time assisting constituents. The secure portal also provides more protection and documentation for the charities as there is an instant record of payment. No more worries that a check has been lost in the mail.
The online system will operate as it has in the past. The website can be accessed at Charitable.OhioAGO.gov/Charity-Registration. Click on the link to Register a Charity and log in to your account. Outstanding fees will appear on your To Do List and have a link to make payment. By clicking the link you can submit payment by credit card or e-check.
If you have any questions regarding your charitable fees payment, please call our office!
