2014 Ohio: Joint Filing Credit

If you are a married couple filing a joint Ohio income tax return, you may qualify for a joint filing credit. Taxpayers may claim a credit on the portion of Ohio adjusted gross income that was not earned and received in Ohio.

Certain taxpayers, who filed married filing joint in Ohio and had nonresident wages, may have filed an incorrect Ohio tax return.

TurboTax has fixed this issue.
