Income Tax

The Village of Butler will no longer be giving or taking income tax forms at the office. Income taxes are now done through RITA.

Where to File

After 2020, all Village of Butler tax payments and tax forms for the current year, are to be sent to the Regional Income Tax Agency (RITA). We encourage you to utilize RITA’s electronic filing and payment system as it is fast, secure, and simple to use. The website is to access the system.

For those wishing to utilize mail, the remittance address for our secured lockbox center is:

Mail completed return and payment with all W-2s, 1099s, miscellaneous forms, and federal schedules to this address. Checks and money orders should be payable to the Regional Income Tax Agency or RITA.

Supporting Documents

Documentation is necessary to verify all amounts of taxable income. Federal schedules, W-2s, and 1099s are necessary or else the tax return will be considered incomplete. A net loss may not be used to offset W-2 income.

Who Must File

The Village of Butler has a mandatory filing ordinance. Everyone 16 years of age and over is required to file a tax return, regardless of whether he/she has a taxable income. If the person is retired and has no income other than retirement (no rentals, part time jobs, etc.), he/she needs to file an exemption form with the income tax department.


 The filing deadlines for municipal taxes are prescribed in Ohio Revised Code and only by the authority of the State of Ohio Tax Commissioner can extensions be granted to taxpayers.  (See Below) 

718.05 (G) (1) (a)  Annual return; filing.

 Except as otherwise provided in this chapter, each individual income tax return required to be filed under this section shall be completed and filed as required by the tax administrator on or before the date prescribed for the filing of state individual income tax returns under division (G) of section 5747.08 of the Revised Code. 

(3) If the tax commissioner extends for all taxpayers the date for filing state income tax returns under division (G) of section 5747.08 of the Revised Code, a taxpayer shall automatically receive an extension for the filing of a municipal income tax return. The extended due date of the municipal income tax return shall be the same as the extended due date of the state income tax return.
