2018 and 2019 INCOME TAX RATE
REDUCED TO 0.525%  

At the December 17, 2018 Council meeting, a majority of Village Council voted to pass its annual Income Tax Ordinance which included a reduction in the income tax rate from 0.55% to 0.525% for the 2018 Indian Hill tax return that is due on April 15, 2019. This reduction in the tax rate came after several months of discussion by the Finance Committee. Some of the factors considered in the Committee’s recommendation to Council included the strong market conditions this year, higher than anticipated income tax receipts in 2017 and 2018, and higher than anticipated year end balances caused by due diligent spending.

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

For questions regarding the tax rate reduction or additional information regarding the 2018 income tax filing season, please do not hesitate to contact Scott Gully, Finance Director/Tax Commissioner, at 513-561-6500.
