Dear Edgerton Residents and Businesses:
Effective September 1, 2016, the Regional Income Tax Agency (RITA) will begin collecting municipal income tax for the Village of Edgerton. 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 Village of Edgerton chose the Regional Income Tax Agency for its ability to offer residents and businesses free on-line filing; free e-payment 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 Village of Edgerton in this capacity.
After September 1, 2016 all Village of Edgerton tax payments and tax forms, for current and prior tax years, are to be sent to RITA. We encourage you to utilize RITA’s electronic filing and payment system as it is fast and simple to use, and it is secure and free. The system will be available for your use beginning October 3, 2016
For those wishing to utilize mail, the remittance address for our secured lockbox center is:
RITA 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.
