I performed the required depreciation addback in a prior year. I have since sold my business and moved out of Ohio, but I still have additional years I could have taken the depreciation deduction. Since I have not received the total benefit of the depreciation for Ohio income tax purposes, can I accelerate the remaining depreciation deductions on my final Ohio return?

No. The deduction cannot be accelerated; it must be taken in equal increments over the subsequent tax years. If the taxpayer has other Ohio sourced income, the deduction can be used to offset the tax liability on their future Ohio returns. See R.C. 5747.01(A)(21)(a).
