Income Tax Department
Everyone who lives within the Village limits and/or performs work within the Village is responsible for filling out a questionnaire and filing an income tax return with the Village of Garrettsville.
There is currently a 1.75% income tax on all salaries, wages, commissions and other financial compensation for everyone who lives in or performs work within the Village.
Income tax returns are due April 15th each year. If you would like to have your return completed in our office, there is no charge and it usually takes about 10 minutes to complete. Returns will be completed during regular business hours only. An appointment is not necessary but is strongly recommended.
You will receive a 50% credit for taxes paid to another city up to 1.75%. There is a penalty of 1½% per month (18% per year) for each month that a final return is not filed. There is a .83% per month (10% per year) interest fee on all unpaid balances.
Approximately 66% of the Village's income is derived from taxes collected. This income maintains 2 parks, 2 cemeteries and the street lights. It provides 24 hour police protection and the maintenance of the streets including paving and repairs, and also, plowing of the streets and sidewalks. The Village collects branch clippings on the first Monday of each month April through November. This income provides for spring and fall cleanups for the Village residents. It also provides for the repair and upkeep of the storm sewers.
As you can see, there are many uses for the money received from the income taxes, all of which are beneficial to the residents of Garrettsville. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact our office.Individual Income Tax Questionnaire
