Marion City Auditor – Income Tax Division

The Income Tax Department is a division of the City Auditor’s Office that is responsible for the receipt of all local income tax payments, along with processing and auditing of all returns filed in their office. City income taxes include employer’s withholding tax and both net profit and individual tax returns. 

The City of Marion is a mandatory filing municipality, which requires the registration of all businesses doing work within the city limits as well as all individuals that live and/or work within the city limits. The local tax rate is 2%. 

Revenue collected from City income taxes is broken down and distributed to help fund city services, including but not limited to general fund; safety services; street construction, maintenance, and repair; parks; and transit.

Filing Deadline for 2020 Tax Year Extended

The Marion City income tax filing deadline has been extended until May 17, 2021. Recently, the Internal Revenue Service announced it’s plans to extend the federal tax filing deadline. The State of Ohio followed the same path and is extending the state tax filing deadline until May 17, 2021.

Taxpayers can securely mail in their tax documents to the Auditor’s Office. In addition, taxpayers can securely drop off documents inside the drop box located just inside the front doors of City Hall next to the Utility Billing Department.
