The Village of Arlington Heights partners with other Ohio municipalities and participates in a shared income tax service. In doing so, the Regional Income Tax Agency ( also know as RITA) administers and collects the income taxes on behalf of Arlington Heights. All residents are required to file a tax return (or valid exemption certificate) with RITA by April 15th (excluding holidays).
To register, obtain forms, file a return, make payments, and view Frequently Asked Questions please visit the RITA website www.ritaohio.com. RITA Customer Service Agents are available to help answer questions and provide assistance Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 5:00pm by calling toll-free at 1-800-860-7482.
The Village of Arlington Heights income tax is a 2.1% earnings tax on persons who live or work in the Village. A credit is given to residents who pay taxes to other municipalities. Residents who work in areas imposing less than a 2.1% earnings tax must pay the difference to Arlington Heights. All residents must file a return even if no tax is owed.
Residents that fail to file or respond to a subpoena, will be cited to Mayor’s court.
