Mr Balderson and his Republican allies have backed away from the tax plan in recent weeks, training their fire instead on top House Democrat Nancy Pelosi.
The Associated Press does not declare winners in races subject to an automatic recount.
With 100% of precincts reporting, Balderson had received 101,574 votes, or 50.2 percent, while the Democrat Danny O'Connor had received 99,820 votes, or 49.3 percent of the vote.
The president also traveled to the district over the weekend in an attempt to give Mr. Balderson a boost.
Trump won the district by 11 percentage points in the White House race in 2016 and Republican Pat Tiberi won re-election to the House by a whopping 37 percentage points. "At our core we've always been a party about people - how we empower people against big corporations and against the exploitation we've seen for a long time". "Strong on Crime, Border & Military", the president tweeted on the eve of the election.

In a special election season that featured almost a dozen congressional contests, Democrats claimed just a handful of wins, but they may have cause for optimism this fall.
But it isn't entirely clear if Trump's support will ultimately help or hurt Balderson on Tuesday.
The close race in the OH special election became a referendum on Trump's leadership and a last chance to gauge Democratic strength ahead of November's midterm elections.
His opponent's campaign was described by some analysts as "not serious".
O'Connor has dominated Balderson on the local airwaves.
The 12th district has numerous hallmarks of areas that could be weak spots for Republicans this cycle - well-educated, relatively affluent suburbs that may have soured on Trump and are looking to register their frustration through their midterm vote.
O'Connor needed Franklin County - which includes the state capital of Columbus - to come out strongly for him in order to topple his Republican rival.
"A Republican loss well might tell us more". The field included Fayrouz Saad, who would be the first Muslim woman in Congress.

He would join Tim Scott of SC as the only black Republican senators if he wins in November. "Congratulations to a future STAR of the Republican Party, future Senator John James", Trump tweeted.
