Ohio allows for a subtraction of Disability and Survivor benefits as well as a subtraction for Uniformed Services Retirement Income. You can deduct the Disability and Survivor Benefits to the extent that they were included in your federal adjusted gross income.
Where do I enter this in my account?
To make this manual entry, go to:
- State Section
- Ohio Return
- Subtractions from Income
- Enter Survivors Benefits or Enter Disability Benefits
What else do I need to know?
You may not deduct temporary wage continuation payments, retirement benefits that were converted from disability upon reaching qualifying age, or temporary payments for illness.
For the Uniformed Retirement income, uniformed services include Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard. You can deduct this income only if the income was included in the federal adjusted gross income AND if the income is related to your service in the Military or National Guard.
