Income tax is the City of Circleville’s largest single source of revenue. The City is a member of the Regional Income Tax Agency (also known as RITA), which provides services to collect income tax for municipalities in the State of Ohio. The City also maintains a local income tax office, open two days a week, to provide additional taxpayer assistance and coordinate efforts with RITA to maximize compliance with the Circleville Income Tax Ordinance.
Every taxpayer who anticipates owing $200.00 or more must estimate their taxes and make quarterly payments on the anticipated tax due. A declaration of estimated tax must be filed by April 15 and can be shown on RITA's income tax return (line 20 of Form 37). Estimated payments are due April 15, June 15, September 15, and December 15. Bills are only generated for the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th quarters.
