City Taxes provide funding for the important services and programs that the city implements for every resident and business. From paving streets and picking up trash, to police and fire safety forces, these funds secure the services that keep our community safe and clean and ensure that life is better here.
The Regional Income Tax Agency provides services to collect income tax for municipalities in the State of Ohio. RITA's Board of Trustees is authorized to administer and enforce the income tax laws of each of the participating municipalities. However, each municipal corporation retains its right to administer and enforce its own income tax laws concurrently with the Board.
RITA offers comprehensive tax collection from registration through litigation.
The Regional Income Tax Agency, known as “RITA” was formed in 1971 to administer the income tax ordinance of any Ohio municipality (city or village in Ohio) that joins the Agency through the Regional Council of Governments (RCOG). Although not every Ohio municipality is a RCOG member, currently over 370 taxing jurisdictions (more than half of the municipalities in Ohio with an income tax) utilize RITA to handle their municipal income tax collection and enforcement efforts.
