Please Read Prior To Filing 2023 Tax Form  

2023 Income Tax Rate set at 0.45%  

In accordance with the IRS filing, the deadline for the Village of Indian Hill income tax will be Monday, April 15, 2024.

The Village Council has been completing its annual income tax rate review to determine the income tax rate for the upcoming year.   After thorough review, Council unanimously passed an emergency Ordinance at the December 18, 2023 Council meeting to reduce the income tax rate from 0.475% to 0.45%.

This reduction was based on the following factors: 1.) higher than anticipated income tax receipts in 2022 and 2023; 2.) higher than anticipated year end balances; and 3.) conservative spending; and 4.) utilization of grant funds for capital projects.

Notwithstanding the reduction in the income tax rate, budget projections continue to forecast sufficient fund reserves over the next few years.  In addition, the projections account for future known and estimated liabilities, contingencies associated with the current volatile market and inflationary conditions, a viable ten-year capital improvement program centered on significant infrastructure needs, and cash flow stability.

With the emergency legislation, the new rate will go into effect January 1, 2024 for the upcoming 2023 tax filing season.

For questions regarding the tax rate reduction or additional information regarding income tax filing, please do not hesitate to contact Scott Gully, Finance Director/Tax Commissioner, at (513) 561-6500.
