Effective October 1, 2022, the Regional Income Tax Agency (RITA) will begin collecting municipal income tax for the Village of Lincoln Heights

Dear Lincoln Heights Residents and Businesses:

Effective October 1, 2022, the Regional Income Tax Agency (RITA) will begin collecting municipal income tax for the Village of Lincoln Heights. Formed in 1971 through the Regional Council of Governments, RITA is a governmental agency established under Chapter 167 of the Ohio Revised Code. RITA provides income tax collection and processing services for more than 350 of Ohio's municipalities and is the largest municipal income tax collection agency in the state. RITA's shared services offer municipalities a comprehensive, efficient and effective solution to income tax collection that results in cost savings and increased tax collections. The Villages of Lincoln Heights chose RITA for its ability to offer residents and businesses free online services and its ability to maximize the Village's tax collection efforts. RITA will be responsible for the administration and collection of all income taxes and will serve the Village of Lincoln Heights in this capacity.

After October 1, 2022, all Lincoln Heights' tax payments and tax forms, for current and prior tax years, are to be sent to RITA. We encourage you to utilize RITA's free and simple online services, FastFile and MyAccount. Beginning October 1, 2022, residents will have limited access to electronic services. During this time, residents will only have access to RITA's FastFile - no login, user ID or password is needed. Beginning November 1, 2022, residents and businesses will have complete access to RITA's MyAccount applications. Visit to access FastFile, MyAccount and tax forms.

For those wishing to utilize mail, the remittance address for our secured lockbox center is:
                                  P.O. Box 477900
                                  Broadview Hts, Ohio 44147-7900
Checks or money orders should be payable to the Regional Income Tax Agency or RITA. Please include your account number as indicated above on all payments and correspondence.

RITA will inform Lincoln Heights taxpayers of filing obligations using a notification campaign that includes messaging through social media, notifications on various websites, radio spots, and newspapers across the State of Ohio.

If you have an existing account with RITA and are already remitting withholding taxes for another RITA municipality, simply add the Lincoln Heights tax payment to the RITA Form 11.
