FAQs - Individual Income Tax Preparer Electronic Filing Requirement

Do I have to file my clients' Ohio income tax returns through the federal/state e-file program or may I use Ohio's electronic applications?

You do not have to file your clients' returns through the federal/state e-file program. Instead, you may use I-File, Ohio's web based application, or Ohio's TeleFile application to file your clients' Ohio income tax returns. Both are available through our Online Services.
