FAQs - Individual Income Tax

Why did I receive a 1099-INT from the Department of Taxation?

Form 1099-INT is an income statement used to report interest you received during the tax year. Generally, the Department issues a 1099-INT if you received a refund during the tax year which included interest.

The amount reported on form 1099-INT is likely income for federal tax purposes. If you prepare your own taxes, you should review the federal return instructions for reporting interest income for more information. If you use a tax preparer, you should provide the 1099-INT along with your other tax information to the preparer. Do not include the 1099-INT with any Ohio tax return.
