When do my taxes have to be paid?

The City of Wadsworth income tax ordinance states that if your tax liability is greater than $200, at least 90% of your tax liability or 100% of your prior year tax liability must be paid by the due date (see note below) to avoid potential penalty and interest charges on underpaid taxes. We can estimate your taxes based on your pay stub, and you can pay the estimated amount by the due date. After you get your W-2, your actual tax liability for the year will be calculated, and any estimates paid deducted from the amount due. Overpaid taxes will be credited to next year's liability or a refund will be issued under certain circumstances. 

Note: For individual taxpayers, for tax year 2018 and beyond (returns due in 2019 and beyond), the final due date for paying estimated tax is January 15. This is a change in the law mandated by the State. For business taxpayers, the final due date remains December 15.
