Ohio Department of Taxation Ohio Taxes withheld for neighboring state In error, I withheld Ohio state income tax for an employee who lives in a neighboring state with which Ohio has a reciprocal agreement. How can my employee get a refund of their erroneous withholding? A resident of Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Pennsylvania and West Virginia who had Ohio state income tax erroneously withheld from their wages during the preceding calendar year can file Ohio form IT 1040 to receive their refund. The reciprocity wages earned in Ohio should be deducted on Schedule A of form IT 1040, and deducted on line 2 on the front of form IT 1040. Any remaining tax is deducted by calculating a non-resident credit on Schedule D of form IT 1040. Visit The Ohio Department of Taxation for a question regarding errors and refunds http://tax.ohio.gov/documents/forms/school_district_income/2010/WTH_EmployerLett er.pdf
