Ohio Benefit Bank

The Ohio Benefit Bank (OBB) is an online program that promotes economic empowerment by helping low and moderate income Ohioans to file their tax returns for free. At the same time, the program assesses their eligibility for a range of critical tax credits and work supports, such as childcare, utility assistance and food assistance. These programs provide resources to individuals who may be having a hard time making ends meet, while boosting the money spent in our communities.

The OBB provides help with and/or access to:

  • State/Federal Income Tax Preparation and Electronic Filing
  • Earned Income/Child Care Tax Credits
  • Food Assistance (SNAP)
  • Women, Infants, and Children (WIC)
  • USDA Child Nutrition Programs
  • Healthcare Programs for Children and Families
  • Medicaid for the Aged, Blind, and Disabled
  • Medicare Premium Assistance
  • Child and Family Health Services (CFHS)
  • Bureau for Children with Medical Handicaps (BCMH)
  • Extra Help for Medicare Part D
  • Ohio's Best Rx
