In all American states, including Ohio, tax evasion is against the law. United States citizens are all expected to pay their taxes and be productive, contributing residents of the country.

However, it is important that the government maintains the integrity of these programs by properly screening the applicants and winners of these contracts, in Ohio and elsewhere.
