Akron, Ohio – Summit County Fiscal Officer Kristen M. Scalise CPA, CFE is reminding consumers as cooler weather approaches, they should be alert when purchasing firewood. Fiscal Officer Scalise’s Weights & Measures inspectors enforce Ohio laws that protect consumers when they buy firewood.

Fiscal Officer Scalise offers the following guidelines to make sure consumers are receiving the correct amount of firewood:

Fiscal Officer Scalise stated, “A license is required to sell or advertise the sale of firewood in Summit County. Because firewood is a taxable product all Firewood Dealers must have a valid Ohio retail vendor’s license”.
