Ohio State Taxes

In recent years the Ohio Department of Taxation has found that only 10% of printed personal income tax returns end up being filed with the state of Ohio.  To eliminate this waste of paper, they are ending bulk distributions of paper forms. Income Tax Instruction booklets, however, will continue to be sent to libraries.

Paper forms can still be obtained by:

  • Visiting the Ohio Department of Taxation Web site (tax.ohio.gov)
  • Calling our toll-free Forms Request Line (1-800-282-1782), or
  • Writing us at: Ohio Department of Taxation, P.O. Box 2476 Columbus, Ohio 43216-2476

Deliveries of Income Tax Instruction booklets will begin in January 2017. Since we do not know exactly when they will be delivered, you may want to call the reference desk at 330.653.6658 x1010 to find out if we have received them.
