School District Withholding Information

Many school districts in Ohio have an income tax.

  • School district income tax is based on where you live, not where you work. If you live in a taxing school district, you are required to file and pay school district income taxes.
  • On the IT-4, there is a place to list the school district name and 4 digit school district number.
  • If you are unsure if you live in a taxing school district, you can use The Finder on the Ohio Department of Taxation’s website. The Finder allows you to input your address to see if you live in a taxing school district. Your result will show the school district name, 4 digit number, and tax rate. Follow this link to The Finder
