We were illinois residents, but my husband took a job in Ohio and has worked the entire year there. We decided not to move our family there, so I live in illinois with our kids, and he lives in Ohio and comes home on the weekends, when possible. I have no income, and all of our income was earned in Ohio. Do we still need to file an illinois return? =====>>>>>>>>yes unless you/your spouse atre full year resdients of Ohio, you need to file Illinois return as full year residents of Illinois.
Do we need to file as a resident or non-resident in Ohio? ===>>>>>>>As there is no Reciprocal Agreements between Ohio and Illinois,
NOT you, but only your spouse needs to file his return with Ohio as a NON-resident of Ohio and claim his tax paid to Ohio to Illinois.
We own a house in illinois, and rent an apartment in Ohio.====>>>>>>>>>>as mentioned above.
