What electronic filing options are available?
Tax preparers can electronically file returns through Ohio’s e-file program, using third party software approved by the Department of Taxation. A list of approved software is available on the “Tax Preparer Electronic Filing” webpage.
Additionally, preparers may file returns using I-File, found on the Department’s Online Services webpage. I-File is a web-based application available free of charge. Please note that preparers cannot create their own I-File account. Instead, the preparer will need to create an account for each client.
See the FAQ category “Income – Online Services (I-File/ePayment/eStatement)” for more information.
