Unlike many free offerings, there are no income requirements and there are no hidden fees for state returns! There may be small fees if the return requires a Schedule C, D, or E. It is done completely online and can only be accessed through the link below.

When using for your Ohio state tax return, the software will ask you to for your county and school district. Unfortunately, this will NOT automatically create your School District return. So, if you reside in a school district that has an income tax, you will ALSO need to create a School District return form, SD-100. (See picture below)

For assistance, you can call the help line: 866-698-9435.

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) is a volunteer-driven program that assists taxpayers in preparing their Federal, State and School District taxes for free.

Social Security cards are needed for all taxpayers and dependents claimed on the tax return.
