Filing Requirements & Forms?

Benefits of filing

If you have determined that you are not required to file an Ohio income tax return, you still may be eligible for a refund upon filing a return. If you worked at a job where your employer withheld taxes on your behalf to be paid to the State of Ohio, and this amount equals more than the tax amount due, then you are entitled to a refund. That refund may equal up to the entire amount paid in by your employer.

To determine if your employer withheld taxes, see the W-2 form sent to you from your employer. Boxes 15 and 17 would show that a tax amount was taken out for Ohio, and what amount that was.
