Beginning January 1, 2009, Ohio will have lower state income tax rates, as a result of the changes to the Ohio individual income tax rates enacted by House Bill 66 in 2005. The new employer withholding tables for 2009 are available on-line at: http://tax.ohio.gov/divisions/employer_withholding/index.stm. These new employer withholding tables are intended for use in pay periods ending on or after January 1, 2009.  

Employers who need more information about employer withholding may contact the Ohio Department of Taxation at (888) 405-4039.
