2020 & 2021 Income Tax Rate
set at 0.525%  

At the December 21, 2020 Council meeting, Village Council voted to pass its annual Income Tax Ordinance which maintained the tax rate of 0.525% as provided in Section 93A-03 of the Code of Ordinances.  The tax rate remains the same for the tax year 2020, and was also set prospectively at 0.525% for the tax year 2021.  This prospective 2021 rate may change depending upon actual 2021 tax revenues and other future year budget considerations.

This tax rate was set after several months of discussion by the Finance Committee. The Committee’s recommendation to Council included budget projections that continue to forecast sufficient reserves over the next few years. In addition, the projections account for future known and estimated liabilities, a viable and active ten-year capital improvement program centered on significant infrastructure needs, and cash flow stability.

For questions regarding the tax rate or additional information regarding the 2020 income tax filing season, please do not hesitate to contact Scott Gully, Finance Director/Tax Commissioner, at 513-561-6500.

If I pay tax to another community, do I receive a credit on my Indian Hill tax?

The Indian Hill Tax is non-reciprocal. Taxes paid to another community do not change the amount due to Indian Hill.

If I moved into or out of Indian Hill during the tax year, do I have to pay the tax for the entire year?

If you moved into or out of Indian Hill from or to another Ohio location, the taxable income amount is prorated based on the percentage of time during the year you resided inside the Village. 

            If you moved into or out of Indian Hill from an out of state location, your taxable income equals your Ohio adjusted gross income, less the amount reported to the State of Ohio as income not received in Ohio on the IT1040 Ohio Schedule of Credits, Line 25, plus the portion of the business income deduction that was earned in Ohio.

Is there any income taxable to the state that is not taxable to the Village?

If Ohio Adjusted Gross income is less than $5,000, no tax is due.  However, if you file a state of Ohio tax return, you will still need to file with Indian Hill even though no tax is due. 

Ohio State Teachers Retirement System (STRS), Public Employees Retirement System (PERS), Police & Firemen Retirement Systems of Ohio (P & FRS), and City of Cincinnati pensions are not taxable. 

Other retirement income received on account of retirement and for which a credit may be taken on the state of Ohio individual tax return may be deducted up to the amount included in Ohio Adjusted Gross Income not to exceed $4000.  Only retirement income which qualifies for a retirement credit on the Ohio Tax Form IT1040 may be deducted.
