Income Tax Rates
Effective January 1, 2015, the City of Shelby tax on earned income is 1.50%. For residents who live in Shelby and work in other municipalities or villages with an income tax, effective January 1, 2019, a credit is applied up to the first .75% of earned income. The other.75% of earned income, of which .30% was levied and passed to pay for the Shelby Justice Center and .20% was levied and passed to pay for paving of streets, alleys and sidewalks and .25% to the general fund, is paid by all residents with earned income.
Changes to Income Tax for 2016
To comply with House Bill 5, the City of Shelby passed Ordinance 50 – 2015. This will change the way that income tax is collected by the City of Shelby Income Tax Department. Read Income Tax Rules and Regulations for the new collection method.
Documentation is necessary to verify all amounts of taxable income. Federal schedules, W-2’s and 1099’s are necessary or else the tax return will be considered incomplete. A net loss may not be used to offset W-2 income.
Who Must File?
Shelby has a mandatory filing ordinance. Everyone, 18 years of age and over, is required to file a tax return, regardless of whether they have a taxable income. If the person is retired and has no income other than retirement (no rentals, part time jobs, etc.), they need to mark the box on the back of the tax form and record the date they retired, sign and date the form.
Per AM. Sub. HB 5 passed on December 19, 2014 by the Ohio General Assembly, and in accordance with Ohio Revised Code Section 718, we will be publishing our interest rates here.
