Overview of Ohio Taxes

Ohio has a progressive income tax. While the state rate is relatively low compared to other states with an income tax, many Ohio municipalities charge an additional income tax. Sales tax is also collected at both the state and local level. The state’s average effective property tax rate is among the highest in the country.

  • About This Answer

    Our income tax calculator calculates your federal, state and local taxes based on several key inputs: your household income, location, filing status and number of personal exemptions. Also, we separately calculate the federal income taxes you will owe in the 2020 - 2021 filing season based on the Trump Tax Plan.

    How Income Taxes Are Calculated

    • First, we calculate your adjusted gross income (AGI) by taking your total household income and reducing it by certain items such as contributions to your 401(k).
    • Next, from AGI we subtract exemptions and deductions (either itemized or standard) to get your taxable income. Exemptions can be claimed for each taxpayer as well as dependents such as one’s spouse or children.
    • Based on your filing status, your taxable income is then applied to the the tax brackets to calculate your federal income taxes owed for the year.
    • Your location will determine whether you owe local and / or state taxes.

Taxes in Ohio

Ohio State Tax Quick Facts

  • Income tax: 0% - 3.990%
  • Local income tax: 0% - 3%
  • Sales tax: 6.5% - 8%
  • Property tax: 1.48% average effective rate
  • Gas tax: 38.50 cents per gallon of regular gasoline and 47.00 cents per gallon of diesel

Starting in 2005, Ohio’s state income taxes saw a gradual decrease each year. For the 2021 tax year, which you file in early 2022, the top rate is 3.99%. Alone, that would place Ohio at the lower end of states with an income tax, but many Ohio municipalities also charge income taxes, some as high as 3%.

Similarly, Ohio’s statewide sales tax rate is 5.75%, but when combined with county sales tax rates ranging from 0.75% up to 2.25%, the total average rate is 7.17%. In all, the state and local tax burden for the average Ohio taxpayer is slightly above the national average, but that burden varies depending on what city and county a taxpayer calls home.

A financial advisor in Ohio can help you understand how taxes fit into your overall financial goals. Financial advisors can also help with investing and financial planning - including retirement, homeownership, insurance and more - to make sure you are preparing for the future.

Ohio Income Taxes

Like the federal government, Ohio collects taxes based on income “brackets.” That is, the higher a taxpayer’s income, the higher rate the person pays. These rates vary from half a percent of taxable income, up to 3.99%. The table below shows the marginal rate paid on taxable income for filers in Ohio.

Income Tax Brackets

All Filers
Ohio Taxable IncomeRate
$0 - $25,0000.000%
$25,000 - $44,2502.765%
$44,250 - $88,4503.226%
$88,450 - $110,6503.688%
$110,650+3.99%

These are rates on taxable income, which is lower than a taxpayer’s actual income. This is because of the existence of deductions and exemptions. State income taxes in Ohio are based off of your federal adjusted gross income, which incorporates certain federal deductions. Ohio taxpayers cannot claim separate itemized deductions on their state tax returns.

In Ohio, filers can claim an additional exemption (for dependent children and persons other than the taxpayer and spouse to whom the taxpayer provides support and claims on the federal tax return) of between $1,850 and $2,350, depending on income level. Individuals making $40,000 or less are eligible for the full exemption of $2,350. Those making more than $80,000 can claim an exemption of $1,850. Earners between those two values are eligible for an exemption of $2,100. 

Ohio Municipal Income Taxes

Many municipalities in Ohio collect income taxes of their own, with rates as high as 3% in some areas. Below are the municipal tax rates for Ohio’s largest cities, as well as the rates for every school district that collects an income tax. These are all assessed at a flat rate, based on the taxable income used for Ohio state taxes.

While those taxes apply to nearly every product that can be bought, there are some exceptions. For example, there is no sales tax on newspapers, prescription drugs, property used for agricultural production (a tractor, for example) or utilities such as gas, water and electricity. Food is also exempt from sales tax, so long as it is not prepared for on-site consumption (at a restaurant, for example).

Ohio Alcohol and Tobacco Tax

Ohio also collects additional excise taxes on alcohol and tobacco. It has a beer excise tax of 18 cents per gallon. The tobacco tax is currently $1.60 per pack of 20.

Ohio Property Tax

According to the Ohio Department of Taxation, the property tax is the oldest tax in Ohio, dating back in its current form to 1825. Ohio’s average effective property tax rate is 1.48%, making it the 13th-highest in the country.

However, since this tax is primarily collected at the county level, that rate will vary depending on where you live. In Cuyahoga County, for example, the effective property tax rate is 2.44%. On the other hand, in east Ohio’s Lawrence County, the effective rate is just 0.87%.

While Ohio’s property tax may be above national average, its rates remain lower than many of the surrounding Midwest states. If you would like to refinance your home or you are looking to move to the Buckeye state, our Ohio mortgage guide has all the essential information about getting a mortgage in the state.

Ohio Gas Tax

Regular gasoline is taxed at a rate of 38.50 cents per gallon in Ohio. Taxes on diesel gas are 47.00 cents per gallon.

Ohio Estate Tax

As of January 1, 2013, there has been no estate tax in Ohio. For the estates of persons who died prior to that date, however, the prior tax may still be due.
