Income Tax Information
The Income Tax Code is found in Chapter 34 of the Wadsworth City Codified Ordinances. PLEASE NOTE: Effective January 1, 2012, the City of Wadsworth income tax rate is 1.4%. You receive up to 1% credit for income taxes paid to your city of employment. Be sure to use this rate when estimating your City taxes. For tax years prior to 2012, the City of Wadsworth income tax rate is 1.3%.
Effective July 1, 1981, every person or entity is required to file an annual tax return for each year or portion of the year you have earned income (earned income also includes gambling or lottery winnings) and you reside in or conduct business in Wadsworth. Wadsworth residents who have no taxable income for the year are required to file an Exemption Certificate (unless you have received a permanent exemption from the Auditor.)
Presently the income tax supports the General Fund, Recreation, Streets, Capital Improvements, and City Hall. Click here for more detail.
If you suspect that someone is not paying tax or is a business not sending in withholding, give us the information and we will check it out. By law we cannot give you detail about a taxpayer's filings, but you can be assured that the information you give will be checked to be sure that appropriate taxes are filed and paid. You can contact the City Auditor with the pertinent information.
