The Village of Ottawa Hills has a 1.5% municipal income tax on income earned in the Village or earned by Village residents. Village residents who pay income taxes to another community receive partial credit (50% of the lower rate) for those taxes paid. Most residents work outside the Village and pay .75% income tax to the Village. Income tax is the largest source of revenue to fund Village services, such as police, fire and refuse pickup.
The Tax Department is happy to assist residents in completing tax forms and to answer any questions you may have. Please call or stop by for assistance.
