Individual Income Tax

File Faster

New 1/19/2016: The Ohio Department of Taxation has implemented increased security measures to protect Ohioans and the state from identity theft and tax fraud.  As a result, all taxpayers using Income Tax Online Services are required to complete a new registration.

To register, each taxpayer will need his or her:

  • Issue date from an Ohio issued Driver's License or State ID


  • 2014 Ohio Withholding amount (if an Ohio IT 1040 or IT 1040EZ was filed)

If you do not have the required components OR if you are filing an Ohio income tax return for the first time, you are not eligible to use Income Tax Online Services.

Federal/State e-file

Taxpayers who prepare a return with commercial software or the help of a paid tax preparer may be able to file their federal and state returns electronically through the  federal/state e-file program overseen by the IRS. To help taxpayers make sure their software is compatible with the e-file program, the Department of Taxation maintains  a list of approved software vendors.

All 1099-G’s Issued by the Ohio Department of Taxation will be mailed by January 31st.

1099-G’s are available to view and print online through our Individual Online Services. You can elect to be removed from the next year’s mailing by signing up for email notification. This will help save taxpayer dollars and allow you to do a small part in saving the environment.

All you need to do is register for an account, create your profile, and make the election to receive email notification through “My Notifications” and you will be removed from the mailing list.
