Where’s my refund – Ohio?

 

To check the status of your Ohio state refund online, go to https://www.tax.state.oh.us/IFILE/WheresMyRefundWeb/wheresmyrefund.jsp

To view status information, you will be prompted to enter:

  • Social Security number
  • Date of birth

  • If it’s an amended return

Then, click “Submit” to view your Ohio refund status.

You can also check the status of your refund by calling the Ohio Refund Hot Line at 1-800-282-1784.
