Ohio subtractions for military servicemembers and veterans include:
Ohio Resident Veterans Bonus:
Bonuses that the Ohio Department of Veterans Services paid to you as a veteran of the Persian Gulf, or Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts should not be included in your federal adjusted gross income. Payments made by the state of Ohio for the Ohio Veterans Bonus Program are also excluded from federal gross income. If these are not included in the federal adjusted gross income, you are not able to deduct them on the state return as they have not been included in your income.
Military Injury Relief Fund:
Any military injury relief fund amounts you receive related to physical or psychological injuries that resulted from military action in Operation Iraqi Freedom or Operation Enduring Freedom are not to be included in your federal adjusted gross income.
Any other military relief funds received are included in federal adjusted gross income. But you are able to deduct these on your Ohio return.
To enter the deductions in the program follow these steps:
- State Section
- Ohio Resident return
- Subtractions From Income
- Military Injury Relief Fund
