Does Ohio I-File limit the amount of time you have to file your tax return?

No. There is no limit as long as you make progress in the application and do not exceed 30 minutes on an individual page. If you exceed 30 minutes on a single page, the session will "time out" and you will be required to log back into Ohio I-File to continue. Your filing information will be saved up to the last page completed.
