Dublin Area Taxes
Local Income Tax
The revenue generated from income tax funds the majority of the City’s operations to provide residents and businesses with city services and fund capital improvement projects. All residents over 18 years of age must file a tax return each year with the City of Dublin.
The local income tax rate is 2 percent and applies to gross wages, salaries and other personal service compensation, and net profits of Dublin businesses.
The majority of the revenue generated from property tax provides funding for local schools. The city receives the property tax collected by Franklin, Union and Delaware Counties. Property tax rates vary by district. There are seven taxing districts within the City of Dublin, based upon the county and school district location of the property. Each taxing district has a different full and effective tax rate that is used in calculating the taxes.
The assessed valuation is 35 percent of the appraised market value of the property. The county treasurer collects property taxes on behalf of all taxing jurisdictions. The county auditor remits to the city its portion of the taxes collected. The total full rate for the portion of property taxes allocated to the City of Dublin is 2.95 ($2.95 per $1.,000 assessed valuation) and includes funding for Police operations, capital and parkland. The total effective rate for residential/agriculture is 1.933 for tax year 2017 (collection year 2018) and the total effective rate for commercial/industrial is 2.052.
A 7.5 percent sales tax is imposed on taxable purchases in Franklin, Delaware and Union Counties.
A 6 percent tax is imposed on hotel/motel rooms in Dublin. This revenue is invested back into the community for beautification projects, special events and cultural activities. The Dublin Convention and Visitors Bureau and Dublin Arts Council each receive a percentage of the annual revenues from the hotel/motel tax.
State Income Tax
With rare exception, employers that conduct business in Ohio are responsible for withholding Ohio individual income tax from their employees’ pay. Ohio employers also have the responsibility to withhold school district income tax from the pay of employees who reside in a school district that has enacted such a tax.
