The City Tax Department is now located on the second floor of City Hall, 4717 Main Ave., Ashtabula, Ohio 44004 (Key Bank), at the end of the hall near the elevator.
Municipal Income Tax Filing is due April 15, 2016. All Residents 18 years of age or older must file a tax return annually. Every business located in or performing services within the City of Ashtabula is required to file. Non-residents are required to file only when they have income earned within the City of Ashtabula that is not fully withheld upon or have a business or rental property in Ashtabula City. For City residents, filing of a tax return is required even if there is no income received or if losses were incurred.
Retired residents, who receive only non-taxable income such as Social Security, pensions, dividends, or interest, must indicate this on a tax return to be removed from future filing requirements.
At the present time, Ashtabula does not have the capability to accept forms filed electronically. It is up to you to file a paper return. You may use the calculating form on our website to prepare your taxes. Be sure to enter the proper year at the top, then simply load the required information into the form and the form will do the rest for you. You must print, sign and date the form and return it to the Income Tax Office.
The current tax rate is 1.8%. The maximum credit allowed for taxes paid to other municipalities is 50% of tax paid up to our rate of 1.8%.
