The Mayor with the approval of Council annually appoints the Village Tax Administrator. It is the Administrator's duty to oversee the collections of the Village income tax for the Village and to enforce the Village tax ordinances. As of July 1, 2020, the Tax Administrator has retained Regional Income Tax Agency(RITA) to perform these functions. Generally taxpayers deal directly with RITA. The Tax Administrator is involved directly when taxpayers do not file or a dispute arises.
All Gates Mills residents who are 18 years and older are subject to local income tax and are required to file a RITA (Regional Income Tax Agency) individual income tax return or an exemption certificate annually by April 15. Generally Taxable Income is income from wages, salaries, commission, profit from rents, profit from business or profession, fees, prizes and awards.
Forms and questions should be referred directly to RITA, at 1-800-860-7482, or go to the RITA website at www.ritaohio.com for more information and forms or to file.
