Working from Home? Ensure Local Incomes Taxes are Being Withheld Correctly.

As of 2022, residents who live or work in Hudson must pay city income taxes.

The COVID-19 pandemic changed the location of work for many residents and employees in Hudson. Ohio law requires that income tax be deducted from employee wages in the City which they are are working, not where their employer headquarters is located.

Working from home? Here's what you need to know.

If you work from your home in Hudson, even if your employer is outside Hudson, your employer should be withholding your local income taxes for the City of Hudson. 

I am paying income taxes, does it really matter which city I pay income taxes to?

Yes! In Ohio, each city is funded primarily through the income taxes paid by those who work and live in our communities. Our ability to provide paved streets, upgraded infrastructure, emergency services, trash collection, and more rests on the income we receive from those who are primarily consuming the public services we provide. 

Ensuring your employer is paying taxes to the proper entity makes all the difference in our ability to operate. We need your help to make sure your tax information is correct! Some employers may continue withholding in accordance with your pre-pandemic status, but we ask everyone to comply with State law by confirming your arrangement with whomever manages payroll for your employer.

What if I both reside and work in Hudson?

You do not need to change anything. However, remember that the City now has a two-percent income tax rate in effect for those who work in the City. If your employer is based anywhere but Hudson and you are working from home, please ask your employer to begin withholding taxes for Hudson. Even if you do not work from home every day, your employer is required to withhold income taxes for Hudson on the days you do work from home.

Will I have to file multiple income tax returns if I work from the office in one city and from home in a different city?

No, you are not required to file multiple returns. Hudson residents are required to file an annual tax return with the Regional Income Tax Agency [RITA], accessible at https://www.ritaohio.com/, regardless of whether your employer's primary location is in Hudson or elsewhere. Even if your withholdings are for another jurisdiction, you would file a return through RITA because you are a resident.

Where do I go if I need more help or clarification?

The Regional Income Tax Agency (RITA) collects income tax for the City of Hudson. Contact RITA at (800) 860-7482 or visit here
