Income Tax

The Village of Williamsburg has a 1.0 % municipal income tax that is assessed on all income earned by individuals residing or working in the Village and the net profit of business attributable to activities in the Village.  Credit up to 1.0% is allowed to residents for tax paid to other municipalities. 

Earned income includes items such as wages, salaries, tips, bonuses, rental income, net profits from a business or profession, and distributions from partnerships. Examples of items that would be exempt from income tax are interest, dividends, annuities, receipts from Social Security, pensions, military pay, unemployment compensation, alimony, and child support. For additional information, review Williamsburg Income Tax Ordinance 1060-15.

The Village of Williamsburg has partnered with other Ohio municipalities and participates in a shared income tax service. In doing so, the Regional Income Tax Agency (also known as RITA) administers and collects the income taxes on behalf of the Village of Williamsburg. All residents are required to file a tax return (or a valid exemption certificate) with RITA by April 15th (excluding holidays).
