Ohio seeks $210,770 from L.L. Bean firm

COLUMBUS — L.L. Bean, the Freeport, Maine, company known for backpacks, chinos, boots, and camping gear, has a $210,770 disagreement with Ohio over the Commercial Activity Tax.

Tax Commissioner Richard Levin ruled this month that L.L. Bean owes the amount in taxes and penalties for failure to pay the tax from July 1, 2005, to March 31, 2008.

The tax was enacted as part of the 2005 overhaul of the tax code. It is levied on out-of-state companies' gross receipts for “the privilege of doing business in this state.” It is separate from the state sales tax.

The company has 60 days to appeal the decision to the three-member state Board of Tax Appeals.
