Wickliffe Income Tax

Effective October 1, 2017, the Regional Income Tax Agency (RITA) began collecting municipal income tax for the City of Wickliffe.  RITA is a non-profit governmental agency established in 1971 under chapter 167 of the Ohio Revised Code and is the largest municipal income tax collection agency in the State of Ohio. The City of Wickliffe chose the Regional Income Tax Agency for its ability to offer residents and businesses free eFiling, free ePayment capabilities and to maximize the City’s tax collection efforts.  RITA will be responsible for the administration and collection of all income taxes and will serve as an Agent of the City of Wickliffe in this capacity.

After October 1, 2017, all City of Wickliffe tax payments and tax forms, for current and prior tax years, are to be sent to RITA.  You may use RITA’s electronic filing and payment system as it is fast and simple to use, it is secure and free.  www.ritaohio.com
