Information Release

IT 2007-02 Personal Income Tax: Taxable Year 2006 Changes - Due Date Change and Notice of Correction -- Issued February, 2007

The purpose of this information release is to notify Ohio income taxpayers of some changes that have been made to the Ohio 2006 IT-1040 income tax return instructions subsequent to the mailing of the paper returns.  The changes are addressed below.

Tax Return Due Date Change

Following the recently-announced change for filing tax returns with the Internal Revenue Service, the Ohio Department of Taxation has announced that Ohio and school district tax income tax returns and estimated income tax voucher coupons which were due by April 16, 2007 are now due by April 17, 2007.

Notice of Correction

After the Ohio IT-1040 returns were mailed, we discovered an error on page 22 of the instructions. The correction pertains to Line 46 – Other Deductions and “four years” was incorrectly used instead of “five years”. Line f) now reads as follows:

“Deduct one-fifth of the I.R.C. sections 168(k) and 179 depreciation adjustments you added back on each of your last four FIVE years’ Ohio income tax returns.”

Please note that we corrected our web site version of the instructions on January 29, 2007.  If you relied upon an earlier version of the instructions and you have already filed your tax return, you may need to file an amended return. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
