Ohio Deductions & Personal Exemption

Taxpayers in Ohio cannot claim itemized deductions on their state tax returns. However, filers can claim a personal exemption based on how much they earn.

The more income an individual earns, the smaller the personal exemption amount available. Lower-income workers qualify for a higher personal exemption amount. For example, taxpayers with an adjusted gross income (AGI) of more than $80,000 can claim a personal exemption of $1,800. Taxpayers with an AGI less than $40,000 can claim an exemption of $2,300.

Many school districts and municipalities in Ohio also leverage an income tax. Their tax percentages max out at three percent and are all assessed at a flat rate.
