City of North Canton
As of July 1, 2016, the City changed the way our municipal income tax is collected, by partnering with the Regional Income Tax Agency (RITA). All tax returns, quarterly estimates, withholdings, and any other forms or payments should be sent to RITA. Visit their website at www.ritaohio.com to print forms, find instructions, or to file online. Call RITA at 1-800-860-7482. An automated system is available 24/7, or you can speak to an agent in their Brecksville office during business hours.
You may also visit our income tax help desk at City Hall every day between 8:30 and 4:00. We’ll have paper forms you can fill out or there is a computer you may use to file your return online. If you choose online filing, we’ll help you set up an account with RITA. We hope that these options make the transition to a new way of filing City income taxes as easy as possible.
The City has a 1-½% income tax for residents of North Canton and for those employees working within the City limits. Tax returns must be filed by April 15 for individuals and businesses reporting on a calendar year or 105 days from the end of the fiscal year.
The City of North Canton has a mandatory tax filing for all city residents (living in city full year, partial year, or multi residence), 18 and older (individual and businesses).
