The Governor of Ohio, John Kasich, signed HB 479 into law on December 20, 2012. The law will go into effect 90 days from the date that the bill was signed into law. The newly passed statute "includes several miscellaneous asset protection and trust provisions, such as fixing IV QTIP issues as well as the Ohio Legacy Trust Act (5816.01 et seq)."
