Are you paying more Ohio state income tax than you need to?
Perhaps you are! Because when our lawmakers use the Tax Code to fashion public policy, things get complicated in a hurry.
The point of this website is to point out just a few common mistakes which many taxpayers make when dealing with Ohio income tax laws. Let alone the missed tax planning opportunities. Some errors are big; some are small. Look, even a small error—made year after year—can make that error a whopper!
Here's a common scenario: Deep down you know that you should hire an experienced tax return preparer. Nevertheless, you try to save some money by preparing your own tax returns. After all, there's cheap tax software, and even some “free” web-based programs that look easy to use. Answer some questions, input some numbers, press a button: Voila!
But you risk missing out on substantial tax savings, which almost certainly will be more than the cost of seeking good tax advice in the first place. Not to mention all your wasted time and effort.
The interplay between federal and Ohio Tax Codes is dauntingly complex. I'm sorry, but that's what you got. Moreover, not much is going to change any time soon. So, my advice is that you need to work with a competent tax advisor.
