How can I get an extension to file the Ohio estate tax return?

For dates of death on or after January 1, 2000 the tax commissioner has authorized an automatic, six-month extension of time to file the Ohio estate tax return. This permits estates with a date of death on or after January 1, 2000 to have 15 months to file the estate tax return. If additional time is needed, the estate representative may apply for an extension of time to file by submitting ET Form 24, directly to the Estate Tax Division before the 15 month due date of the return. An extension, if granted, is for a maximum of six months per request.
