A credit of anywhere between $25 and $200 is available depending on the type of retirement income. Taxpayers over the age of 65 can claim a credit of $50 on their return. Retirees who take distributions in a lump sum may qualify for a lump sum credit at tax time, however you are not eligible to claim retirement income credit in future years. Additionally, you can't take the $50 senior credit if you take the lump sum credit. Those receiving military pensions can deduct any income not exclude or deducted through taxes.

Employees who work in an Ohio locality may be taxed on income at rates between .4% to 3% depending on the employer.

As a resident of Ohio, you must pay taxes on all of your income, whether it was earned in state or not. If you paid taxes on income earned in other places, you may be eligible for a credit of the taxes paid. Non-residents only have to pay tax on income they earned in the state.

A resident is one who maintains a domicile within the state. This means that they have multiple periods of contact within the tax year. A contact period consists of spending a part of two consecutive days in Ohio, calculated by the number of nights spent within the state. A domicile is generally the permanent home in which one lives.
