Hilliard has a mandatory tax filing. All Hilliard residents age 18 and older must file an income tax return every year by April 15 (or by the following Monday if April 15 is a weekend day), regardless of whether they work within this city. Hilliard residents must pay the City a 2% municipal income tax unless they are taxed at least 2 percent by the taxing district in which they work.
The income tax division of Hilliard’s Finance Department oversees the City’s income tax collection and provides information to residents to ensure they can file income taxes correctly. Residents file income taxes through the Regional Income Tax Agency (RITA), which processes City income tax returns and collects the taxes that are due. Residents can file annual income tax forms electronically, or the income tax return forms can be found under “Additional Links” below.
