We study the existence of strong Kähler with torsion (SKT) metrics and of symplectic forms taming invariant complex structures $J$ on solvmanifolds $G/\Gamma$ providing some negative results for some classes of solvmanifolds. In particular, we show that if either $J$ is invariant under the action of a nilpotent complement of the nilradical of $G$ or $J$ is abelian or $G$ is almost abelian (not of type (I)), then the solvmanifold $G/\Gamma$ cannot admit any symplectic form taming the complex structure $J$, unless $G/\Gamma$ is Kähler. As a consequence, we show that the family of non-Kähler complex manifolds constructed by Oeljeklaus and Toma cannot admit any symplectic form taming the complex structure.
