The Ohio Board of Tax Appeals ruled that medical transcription services meeting the definition of automatic data processing (ADP) are taxable.

The services involved transcribing the spoken word of physicians into written form. The taxpayer claimed this was an exempt professional service.

Ohio taxes ADP but not professional services. Ohio defines ADP as the processing of data for others. Data processing may be a professional service if it involves the study, alteration, analysis, interpretation, or adjustment of data.

The transcription services in this case did not involve the study, alteration, analysis, interpretation, or adjustment of data. As a result, they were not professional services and were taxable.
