How do I determine how much Ohio income tax to withhold from my employee's pay?

Use the Ohio withholding tables to determine the amount of tax to withhold from the employee’s pay. The Ohio employer’s withholding tax tables can be located on our website at the following link: Withholding Tax Tables. The tables are set up by payroll periods (daily, weekly, bi-weekly, semi-monthly, and monthly), which give you a specified amount to withhold. You can also use the percentage method to determine the amount to withhold.
