|Tax Bracket (Single)||Marginal Tax Rate|
|Tax Bracket (Married)||Marginal Tax Rate|
Ohio has nine marginal tax brackets, ranging from 0.54% (the lowest Ohio tax bracket) to 5.39% (the highest Ohio tax bracket). Each marginal rate only applies to earnings within the applicable marginal tax bracket, which are the same in Ohio for single filers and couples filing jointly. The Federal Income Tax, by contrast, has different tax brackets for married, single, and Head of Household taxpayers.
You can think of the bracketed income tax as a flat amount for all of the money you earned up to your highest tax bracket, plus a marginal percentage of any amount you earned over that.
Technically, you don't have just one "tax bracket" - you pay all of the Ohio marginal tax rates from the lowest tax bracket to the tax bracket in which you earned your last dollar. For comparison purposes, however, your Ohio tax bracket is the tax bracket in which your last earned dollar in any given tax period falls.

You can use the income tax estimator to the left to calculate your approximate Ohio and Federal income tax based on the most recent tax brackets.
Keep in mind that this estimator assumes all income is from wages, assumes the standard deduction, and does not account for tax credits.

When calculating your Ohio income tax, keep in mind that the Ohio state income tax brackets are only applied to your adjusted gross income (AGI) after you have made any qualifying deductions.
Qualifying deductions might include an itemized deduction, the Ohio standard deduction, exemptions for dependants, business expenses, etc.
Remember that Ohio may have very different deduction laws from the Federal Income Tax, so you may have to write a whole new list of deductions for your Ohio income tax return.
