Since 2016 there have been changes to Ohio regulations for income tax payment and filing which has caused a lot of confusion and consternation in our community. These changes were made by the state legislature and not the City of Clayton. These regulations apply to residents across every city in Montgomery County and Ohio.
The biggest change, mandated by the Ohio Legislature and not your local community, is the annual estimate and quarterly payment requirement. The new regulation, which is very confusing, requires a statewide threshold for requiring the remittance of estimated taxes to be $200 after withholding and credits for taxes paid to other municipalities is considered. If the taxpayer meets the $200 threshold, the taxpayer shall file a declaration of estimated taxes and make quarterly payment with all payments due by January 15th the following year. These dates are determined and announced by the state of Ohio and will be passed along when Clayton receives them.
Clayton understands this new change is very confusing and we want to help answer any questions you may have. To cut costs of services, Clayton contracts with CCA to collect municipal income taxes.
