Individual Income Tax
2010 Income Tax Returns By Income Class

A total of 5,214,540 Ohio personal income tax returns were filed for tax year 2010 (April 18, 2011 filing deadline). This represented an increase of 0.8 percent from the number of returns filed the previous year. Total federal adjusted gross income of approximately $337.7 billion was reported on the returns, an increase of 11.4 percent from the amount reported for 2009. The average federal adjusted gross income per return was $64,761, an increase of 10.6 percent from 2009. Taxpayers claimed personal exemptions ($1,600 per person) valued at approximately $16.7 billion, an average of $3,204 per return, or approximately two exemptions per return. Ohio taxable income reported on the returns totaled $309.1 billion, an average of $59,277 per return.

Ohio's graduated income tax rates are applied to each taxpayer’s Ohio taxable income to obtain tax liability before the application of credits.  The 2010 tax rates were applied to nine segments of taxable income, with a 0.618 percent rate applied to the first $5,050 of every taxpayer's taxable income, up to a top rate of 6.24 percent on that portion of a taxpayer's taxable income which exceeded $201,800.  Applying these graduated tax rates to Ohio taxable income for all taxpayers yielded total liability of about $13.0 billion before the application of credits.

Net tax liability after subtraction of the personal exemption credit, joint filer credit for two working spouses, senior citizen credit, and other credits was $8.2 billion.

All figures shown in table Y-1 were compiled from returns filed for tax year 2010 with the Ohio Department of Taxation.
