Ohio In-State Residency: E4

If you are, or are dependent upon, an Ohio resident transferred outside of the Unites States by your employer...

OBR rules state, "A person who is transferred by his employer beyond the territorial limits of the fifty states of the United States and the District of Columbia while a resident of Ohio for all other legal purposes and his or her dependents shall be considered residents of Ohio for these purposes as long as Ohio remains the state of such person’s domicile as long as such person has fulfilled his or her tax liability to the state of Ohio for at least the tax year preceding enrollment."

Required documentation in addition to that required on the first page of application:

  • An original statement on employer’s letterhead indicating the employee was an Ohio resident at the time of transfer
  • A copy of students first and signature pages of the  federal and Ohio income tax returns
  • If the student is the spouse of the Ohio resident, a copy of the marriage certificate
  • If dependent on parent or legal guardian, a copy of the fist and signature pages of their federal and Ohio income tax returns proving the student was claimed as a dependent in the most recent tax year

The above is not all-inclusive list.  Provide all documents noted on the Ohio In-State Residency Application for review and include the documentation listed above. Any additional information required to confirm residency status would be requested through your University email account.
