The Ohio income tax along with the federal tax is always deducted at source when the payments or monthly wages are provided to the people. The Ohio income tax laws are pretty much like most other states where the income of a person determines the amount he pays as tax.
The income tax laws in Ohio are different from the federal taxes, which have specific income tax limits for respective income groups. However the income tax rates in Ohio are not similar to those of the federal laws. The income tax rates in Ohio are not fixed. The Ohio State Tax Legislation determines the Ohio income tax rates.
The amount of income tax charged in Ohio is dependent on the amount the person earns; the more an individual earns the more he would need to pay in terms of income tax. The state of Ohio has introduced the Offer in Compromise program. This program makes it easy for negligent taxpayers to pay off their debts that they owe to the state.
However there are certain conditions that need to be satisfied in order to receive this benefit:
Economic hardship, including innocent spouse
In limited instances, a substantial probability that the claim, if collected, would be subject to refund under the respective agencies’ statutes, rules or regulations.
Doubt of collectibility
