What if I make a mistake using Ohio ePayment?

You are able to correct any errors at any time before you authorize your payment. Simply type over your error and continue. Once you have finished entering your payment information, Ohio ePayment asks you to verify the information you entered. If you find you have made an error, Ohio ePayment allows you to edit your payment information prior to authorization.

If the payment has been authorized, the Department will be unable to make any changes to the payment or account information. If you discover you have made a payment to the wrong tax year or school district, you may send a written request for us to transfer the payment. Please be sure to include your name, Social Security Number, address, amount, tax year and school district number, if applicable. Requests can be mailed to:
