ABOUT CAMDEN’S 1% INCOME TAX
In 2015, Camden Council approved a 1% income tax for anyone who lives and/or works in Camden. At that time, the village contracted with the Regional Income Tax Agency (RITA) to collect those taxes.
Please note: RITA is just one of several agencies approved to collect income taxes for Ohio municipalities. RITA also collects taxes for Eaton (1.5%), Gratis (1%) and West Elkton (1%). Other agencies collect for other Preble County towns (i.e., West Alexandria (1%), Lewisburg (1.75%).
Camden’s mandatory income tax is levied on Camden residents who are 18 years and older and who have earned taxable wages. This includes salaries, hourly wages, commissions and other compensation, as well as on net profits from business operations and rental activities.
Residents must file a return for Camden’s income tax annually. In some cases, employers may take the tax out of an employee’s paycheck, but in most cases, residents are responsible for paying this income tax when they file their annual taxes.
Residents of Camden who do not have taxable income (retired, active duty military, etc.) may file an exemption form with RITA directly. After filing the exemption form, and approved by RITA, qualified residents will no longer be required to file a Camden tax return unless or until their status changes (return to work, purchase a rental property, etc.). Residents who are on social security and medicaid do not have to pay the income tax, but must also file an exemption with RITA.
RITA offers a full range of online filing and payment options for your convenience on the RITA Website. When sending by mail, all forms and payments should be mailed directly to RITA at the address on the form. All other correspondence should be sent to:
P.O. Box 47790
Broadview Heights, OH 44147-7900
