The Ohio Department of Taxation accepts online payments by

The credit card payment options are offered by the State of
Ohio in cooperation with Official Payments Corporation.
Please note that Official Payments Corporation charges a
service fee of 2.5 percent (or $1, whichever is
greater) on the amount of the transaction. The State
of Ohio does not receive any portion of this fee. When paying
by credit card, the tax amount and service fee will
appear on separate lines on your credit card statement.
