2023 EVENDALE INCOME TAX RETURN - The due date for filing the 2023 Evendale Income Tax Return, and for paying the tax due, is April 15, 2024.

IN-PERSON TAXPAYER ASSISTANCE IS AVAILABLE BY APPOINTMENT.  Assistance with your tax return is also available by phone, and by e-mail. In addition, E-FILE is available for Evendale resident individuals. 


The State of Ohio made significant changes to the Ohio Municipal Income Tax Laws (Chapter 718 of the ORC), effecting tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2016, including changes to Interest Rates, Late Fees, and Due Dates of Individual Estimated Payments.  The State also allowed Municipalities to require that the Federal Income Tax Return (1040, 1040A, 1040 EZ) be attached to the local Individual Income Tax Return.  Please NOTE:  Federal Form 1040, pages 1 and 2, ALL Form(s) W-2, and Federal Schedules (i.e. Schedule 1, Schedule C, Schedule E, Schedule F, K-1's etc) must be attached to the Evendale Individual Income Tax Return in order for your return to be considered complete.
DECLARATION OF ESTIMATED TAX: must be filed by every taxpayer who anticipates taxable income, if such income is not withheld by an employer.  The declaration and first quarterly estimated tax payment are due by April 15th. For Businesses, the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th quarterly estimated tax payments are due by June 15th, September 15th, and December 15th, respectively.  For Individuals, the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th quarterly estimated tax payments due by June 15th, September 15th, and January 15th, respectively.  At least 90% of the tax liability must be paid on or before the 4th quarterly due date in order to avoid interest and penalty for underpayment of estimated tax.
EXTENSIONS  Effective for tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2016, any taxpayer that has requested a Federal Extension will automatically receive the same extension for filing the Evendale Income Tax Return.  The Federal Extension should be attached to the Evendale return upon filing. The Extension is not required to be submitted by the original due date of the return.  Any taxpayer that has not received a Federal Extension may still request an extension for time to file their Evendale Income Tax Return in writing by the original due date of the return.  Any extension of time to file is not an extension of time to pay any tax due. The balance of tax due must be paid by the original due date of the return.  Requests for extension may be faxed to the Tax Department at (513) 563-4636.
WHO MUST FILE  All residents of the Village of Evendale are required to file an annual tax return. All non-residents are required to file if they performed work or provided services within the Village and had earnings that were not fully withheld on by the employer.  If Evendale tax was properly withheld on the wages of a non-resident by the employer, there is no filing requirement.  Retirees are not required to file and pay tax on their income from Social Security or income from  qualified retirement plans as defined by the IRS.  
Additionally, each business located or performing work and/or providing services within the Village must file an annual Business Income Tax Return with the Village of Evendale.  Any business taxpayer that has elected to “Opt-In” to the Ohio Department of Taxation’s Municipal Net Profit Tax filing system, is required to file the applicable Evendale Income Tax Return with the State of Ohio Department of Taxation.  Upon the election by the taxpayer to file with the State of Ohio DOT, the State Tax Commissioner becomes the Administrator of the taxpayer’s Municipal Income Tax and all Municipal Income Tax Returns, Refund Requests, Estimated Tax Payments, etc must be filed with the State of Ohio until such time the taxpayer elects to Cancel the Municipal Net Profit Tax Account with the State and resume filing the Municipal Income Tax Return with the Village of Evendale. 
INTEREST RATE  The interest rate means the federal short-term rate, rounded to the nearest whole number per cent, plus five per cent.  The rate shall apply for the calendar year next following the July of the year in which the federal short-term rate is determined in accordance with ORC Section 718.27(A)(5) and is applicable for tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2016. The applicable calendar year interest rate is as follows:
