April 15th is Tax Day, which is the final day to file your taxes for the previous year's wages. But what happens if you're a resident of Ohio, and you're late to filing your taxes? First off, you had like...3 months to do this, so what took so long?

Late filing penalty is the greater of 5% of the tax due or $50.00 for each month the return is late, up to a maximum of 50% of the tax due or $500, even if the late-filed return results in a refund.
