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.
Non-Resident Refund Filing Changes with Toledo
For residents who typically request refunds for Toledo tax withheld on Non-Resident Refund (NRR) forms due to work days spent outside of Toledo, new forms and new rules apply for the 2016 tax year. Below is a link to the Toledo forms and instructions. The Ottawa Hills tax office will also have these forms available, as well as assistance in completing them. This is the first year that federal forms 1040 are also required by all cities, and a required attachment to the NRR requests. We still require the original NRR forms to be included with your Village return and we will submit directly to Toledo (and other cities as well). Keep in mind that requesting refund on days out of town but in another Ohio city could trigger filing and paying tax to that other city. If all days out of town are out of state, out of the country or in an Ohio township no additional local tax will be due.
Electronic Payments for Taxes & Fees
As part of our commitment to provide citizens with efficient, convenient service, the Village of Ottawa Hills has partnered with Official Payments Corp. to offer payment of taxes and fees over the Internet and by telephone.

Privacy & Account Numbers
The Income Tax office places the highest priority on the confidentiality of taxpayer records. Our office uses Account Numbers (5 numbers-letter; #####-R) for each taxpayer to track records and transactions. To improve the privacy for items sent through the mail, taxpayers can use their Account Number on documents sent to the office instead of their social security number. Your account number appears on preprinted documents from the Income Tax office. Please call our office if you need you account number.
