Your friend’s tax company might be incorrect. If your friend lived and worked in Oklahoma, then he owed taxes only to Oklahoma. For full-year residents of Oklahoma, taxes are owed to that state for all income earned while a resident of Oklahoma and on all income derived from Oklahoma sources. Additionally, taxes on earned income is due to the state in which the work was physically performed. It does not matter where the company’s headquarters is based if he never worked in that state. If your friend has actually filed his Ohio return already and did not perform any work in Ohio, he will need to amend that return to claim his income taxes back. If he did work in Ohio, then he can claim a credit for taxes paid to other states (Ohio) on his Oklahoma return for that amount.
