1.) Yes, if you work in a municipality with a tax rate of 2.5%. This includes Columbus, Upper Arlington, Bexley, Worthington, Obetz, and Whitehall.
2.) No, if you are a resident working in the City of Grandview Heights, or in a municipality with a local income tax rate of less than 2.5%.
Municipality tax rate (for example income of $50,000):
2.5% of $50,000 = $1,250
Previously not covered by credit:
0.25% of $50,000 = $125
Total taxes owed: $1,375
Municipality tax rate:
Total taxes owed: $1,250
1.) Cancel Withholding: If you previously established a courtesy withholding account with your non-Grandview Heights employer, contact your payroll department to cancel your courtesy withholding. This will eliminate an unnecessary income tax overpayment and the need to file for a refund later.
2.) Reduce Estimated Payments: If you did not have courtesy withholding but made estimated payments during the year, you may be able to reduce your 2017 estimated payments by a comparable amount. For some residents, if this income earned outside the City was the only reason estimated payments were made, you may be able to eliminate estimated payments altogether.
