2014 Ohio: Military and spouse’s wages
On an Ohio tax return, a nonresident service member’s wages and the civilian spouse’s wages excluded under MSRRA can be excluded from Ohio taxes.
Certain customers, with an Ohio tax return that shows the civilian spouse as the taxpayer, may need to amend their Ohio tax return.
TurboTax has fixed this issue.
