I advise you to contact Ohio’s Department of Job and Family Services to find out the exact steps you need to take for your particular issue. However, from 2011, the law in Ohio has stated that employers who earn more than $9,000 a year must pay unemployment taxes. The law explains that new businesses must pay 2.7 per cent of taxable wages in unemployment taxes, whereas new construction businesses must pay 6.4 per cent. Unemployment tax needs to be paid based on the business’ experience rating and once the business has paid taxes on four consecutive quarters. The state of Ohio will determine the rate of experience by how much unemployment taxes you’ve paid compared to how much your former employees have been paid in unemployment benefits. The experience tax rate ranges from 0.7 to 9.6 per cent.

You must remember that before you start to pay unemployment taxes, you need to acquire an account number by mailing the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. They will then inform you of your tax rate and then you will start paying unemployment tax. You must submit your unemployment tax returns quarterly and you will have to fill in the details on the wages paid and your summary at that time. If you do not meet this specific deadline then you may be forced to pay a higher tax rate.

Ohio does seem to have quite a high unemployment tax rate as well as their corporate tax rates as a whole, and according to the Tax Policy Center, Ohio’s maximum employment tax rate is the 9th highest in the nation.

I would not if your claiming a child most likely you wont have to pay in anyways if you make  only 18000 - 23000 a year you wont pay anything if any it will be very small. If you are filing single I would have taxes taken out of your unemployment. I know I live in pa I didnt pay unemployment taxes last year and claimed one chiled and still got back 800.00 at the end of the year. I drew 1200 a month all year also. P.s check your state their all diffrent k.

If you see it on Ohio's state income tax form for 2008 you do, if nothing there you don't.
Of course you will see it on a federal return form its income (not earned but income).
