Marietta City Taxes due — have you filed yet?

Monday, April 15 is the deadline for filing and paying 2018 Marietta City Income Tax and first quarter of your 2019 Declaration of Estimated Tax.

The 2018 rate of 1.7 percent on all earned income applies to all individuals 18 years of age and older who live and/or work in the City of Marietta and all businesses located or doing business in the City of Marietta need to file on their net profits.

Please note: the City of Marietta increased their income tax on Jan. 1, 2019 to 1.85 percent. This will be the 2019 filing rate.

Individuals who work for businesses in the City of Marietta that withhold city tax from their wages do not need to file unless you have another source of income or have an active account with our department from a previous year.

Extensions for filing will be honored with a copy of the Internal Revenue Service extension.

Any tax liability remaining unpaid after it becomes due will be subject to penalty and interest.

Forms are available in our City of Marietta Income Tax office, 301 Putnam St., Suite 1100, City Hall; our website: mariettaoh.net; phone: 740-373-4032, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Friday.

No one likes to pay taxes, but Marietta’s income tax is essential to our basic services such as police, fire and streets maintenance.

Our Income Tax department continues to serve our citizens.
