Estimated Tax Payments

If you estimate that you will owe $200 or more in tax (after credits and withholding, if any), then you should make quarterly estimated payments.

These estimated payments may be required if you have taxable income that is not subject to withholding, if you have business income in an Ohio municipality and/or if you owe additional tax to the municipality where you reside. Common examples include: lump sum payments related to employment, self-employment income, or other sources of income not subject to employer withholding.

If you are required to make estimated payments and do not, you may be subject to penalty and interest.

Due dates of Estimated Taxes

Please note that Filing Due Dates for Individual Estimated Income Tax are the same as the IRS. If a specific due date falls on a weekend or legal holiday, the deadline is automatically extended to the next business day.

Penalty and interest may be imposed for late or non-payment of your estimated payments.
