Tax Filing Information

Let us all be aware that the Village of Lincoln Heights as all municipalities and governing agencies are dependent upon your tax dollars to operate. We urge all residents of Lincoln Heights to file your earnings taxes on the same day you file your federal and state returns. This makes it easier for the Village to continue to operate.


Your return is due by the Federal deadline in April 2019; even if you do not have any taxable income and even if no tax is due.  The Village of Lincoln Heights has mandatory filing for all residents (age 18 and older), business owners, and landlords, commercial and residential.  
As in the past, residents who work outside Lincoln Heights and pay other municipality income tax receive a 1% credit (not to exceed 1% of the amount of income on which tax was withheld) for taxes paid to other municipalities. 

  • In 2018, a Lincoln Heights resident works in Cincinnati, earns $50,000/year
  •  Resident has Cincinnati tax of 2.1% withheld from paycheck totaling $1,050.
  • Lincoln Heights will allow a credit up to 1% of $50,000 or $500.00.
  • Total Lincoln Heights Liability: $50,000 x 2.0% = $1,000 - $500.00 = $500.00 balance due. 
  • A 2019 Estimate will also need to be set up in the amount of $500.00, with $125.00 paid quarterly.*
 *If it is estimated that you will owe more than $200.00 in tax liability for the following year, you MUST set-up quarterly estimated payments with the final payment being made by January 15, 2020, to avoid penalty and interest.  

We strongly encourage you to file your 2018 Lincoln Heights Income Tax Return early.  The forms and instructions are available on the Village web site (click here) or printed forms, instructions, and other information may be obtained from Lincoln Heights Tax Office, or the Village Hall Lobby (1201 Steffen Street, Lincoln Heights, Oh). No forms will be mailed.
