CINCINNATI (AP) - An Ohio legislator and state treasurer candidate wants income tax returns used to help locate veterans eligible for Ohio bonuses and make sure they don't miss out on their money.

Voters in 2009 approved a $200 million bond issue funding bonuses for eligible veterans of the Persian Gulf, Afghanistan and Iraq war eras. But there has been concern that thousands still may not know about the money.

Democratic State Rep. Connie Pillich, of suburban Cincinnati, says her bill would provide space on Ohio income tax returns for taxpayers to indicate whether they, their spouses or dependents were active duty military during the bonus periods. Names, addresses and terms of service would be forwarded to the Department of Veterans Services to help reach veterans.
