The Regional Income Tax Agency (RITA) has mailed “non-filing notices” to taxpayers who neglected to file a municipal income tax return. The letter was sent to 2,548 people who lived or worked in the City of Harrison in 2021.
Harrison collects a 1 percent municipal income tax from people who work in Harrison and from companies located within the City limits. Per Codified Ordinance 183, the 1 percent municipal income tax applies to:
- Qualifying wages
- Commissions from businesses and corporations
- Net profits from businesses and corporations
- Revenue from rental properties
Harrison extends a tax credit of up to 100% of the municipal income tax to residents who pay an income tax to another municipality. However, every resident is still required to complete a City tax return annually.
Taxpayers can simply e-file returns or exemptions, mail or fax to RITA the documents listed on the non-filing notice.
More details about non-filing notices have been provided by RITA at this link.
