City Income Tax

Tax Collection


Since July 1, 2016, the City has partnered with the Regional Income Tax Agency (RITA) for collection of our municipal income tax. All tax returns, quarterly estimates, withholdings, and any other forms or payments should be sent to RITA. Visit the RITA website  to print forms, find instructions, or to file online. Call RITA at 800-860-7482. An automated system is available 24/7, or you can speak to an agent in their Brecksville office during business hours.
