Thank you for your quick response. Box 17 has a state income tax amount of 2730.00, appropriate to the wages amount in Box 16, 65342.00 for the OH line of information. Also indicating on form that I am a part-time resident. Does any of this make a difference?
Why is residency important?
Ohio imposes income tax on all income of resident individuals but only imposes tax on the income of nonresident individuals that is earned or received in Ohio. While residents receive a credit under R.C. 5747.05(B) for income subjected to tax in another state, the credit cannot exceed the tax paid to the other state on that income. In contrast, nonresidents receive a credit under R.C. 5747.05(A) to eliminate tax on income not earned or received in Ohio. So, for example, if the income is from a state that imposes no tax, a resident will get no credit but a nonresident will. However, if the income is from Ohio, both the resident and the nonresident will be subject to Ohio tax.
