FAQs - Employer Withholding

How does Ohio treat the income tax withholding on prizes (either money, goods, or services) awarded through raffles and other charitable fundraisers?

Ohio does not require withholding taxes to be taken out of prize winnings for non-profits. This would apply to churches, schools, and other charities that are permitted to issue W-2Gs to the winner. A copy of the W-2G must be provided to Ohio residents for year-end tax filing purposes.
