In Ohio, an individual’s first obligation is to the city or village where he or she works, earns taxable income, conducts business, or owns rental properties.  The individual’s next obligation is to the city or village where he or she is domiciled.  The community of residence, by local ordinance, may then allow a credit for some or all of the tax that is paid to the community where the income is earned.  Findlay, Mount Cory, Vanlue, and Mount Blanchard do not offer a credit.  Arlington and Carey offer a credit of the amount of tax paid to the community where the income is earned, not to exceed one percent.

Municipal income tax exists in Ohio to assure financial independence for its communities.  Moreover, municipalities use income tax revenues to provide personal and property protection, to build and maintain thoroughfares and infrastructure, to foster skilled workforces, and to promote high qualities of life.  These resources develop and strategically locate mutually-beneficial places that attract businesses and consumers ensuring vocational, professional, entrepreneurial, educational, recreational, cultural, and medical opportunities for all Ohio residents.
