Ohio Tax Rate
While federal tax rates apply to every taxpayer, state income taxes vary by state. States may have a flat tax rate, a marginal tax rate, or not have any state taxes at all.
State tax is imposed by Ohio on your income each year. State income taxes, which vary by state, are a percentage of your earned or unearned income that you pay to the state government.
