Village of Ottawa Hills Income Tax

The Village of Ottawa Hills has a 1.5% municipal income tax on income earned in the Village or earned by Village residents. Village residents who pay income taxes to another community receive partial credit (50% of the lower rate) for those taxes paid. Most residents work outside the Village and pay .75% income tax to the Village. Income tax is the largest source of revenue to fund Village services, such as police, fire and refuse pickup.

The Tax Department is happy to assist residents in completing tax forms and to answer any questions you may have. Currently we are scheduling appointment times for in-person assistance. Please call 419-536-6502 with questions or to schedule an appointment.

Privacy & Account Numbers

The Income Tax office places the highest priority on the confidentiality of taxpayer records. Our office uses Account Numbers (5 numbers-letter; #####-R) for each taxpayer to track records and transactions. To improve the privacy for items sent through the mail, taxpayers can use their Account Number on documents sent to the office instead of their social security number. Your account number appears on preprinted documents from the Income Tax office. Please call our office if you need your account number.

Non-Resident Refunds

For residents filing with another city for a refund of local tax withheld on workdays spent outside of the work city, copies of the Non-Resident Refund form are required to be submitted with the Ottawa Hills return. The Tax Office is happy to assist with this process. Below is a link to the Toledo website for forms and instructions.
