Under Ohio House Bill 197, during the Covid-19 Health Emergency – declared by the Ohio Governor on March 9, 2020 -  employers were expected to continue to withhold Evendale tax for all employees at their normal work location within the Village of Evendale, including those employees who may be working from home, and regardless of the location of the employee’s residence.  This order remains in effect for the duration of the Health Emergency, plus 30 days.  Therefore, the employee is not eligibile for a refund of tax withheld by the employer, or tax paid by or on behalf of the employee to the Village of Evendale whose normal work location is Evendale, due to the Covid-19 Health Emergency.

  Withholding Tax Requirements during the Declared State of Emergency

On March 9, 2020 the Governor of Ohio declared a State of Emergency due to the Corona Virus - Covid 19 pandemic.  Legislation was passed on March 26, 2020 which clarified several tax related topics, including requirements for municipal tax withheld from the wages of employees who may be working from home due to the State of Emergency.  The provisions for withholding tax may be found in Section 29 of HB 197, which went into effect on March 26, 2020.  In summary, HB 197 provided that municipal tax should continue to be withheld by employers for employee's at the employee's "principal place of business" prior to the State of Emergency. Evendale employers should continue to withhold tax for Evendale for the duration of the order, plus 30 days, even though the employee may be working from home due to the pandemic.  Please visit Tax Forms - Withholding Tax, for additional information.
