File your returns using approved tax preparation software.
IRS e-file is a way to prepare and file your return electronically with the IRS and Ohio. You can e-file using approved, commercially available software or you can have your return prepared and transmitted by an authorized tax professional. Some programs allow you to include supporting documentation as PDF attachments. For more information, see www.irs.gov/filing/e-file-options. You may be charged for using this option. Certain individuals may qualify for a free federal e-filing program.
Direct deposit: When filing electronically, you have the option to direct deposit your entire refund into one of the following: a checking account, a savings account, an Individual Retirement Account or Annuity (IRA) or an Ohio 529 (CollegeAdvantage) savings plan account. Once your return is submitted, you cannot change the banking information provided for direct deposit. The Department is not responsible for a lost refund if you enter the wrong account information.
