Income Tax


**Mandatory Estimated Tax Payments**

Effective for tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2016, the payment of estimated taxes is mandatory for any taxpayer that expects to owe $200 or more for the tax year.  Failure to pay estimated tax payments will result in a late payment penalty of 15% of the amount not timely paid plus the current calendar year interest rate (See Interest Rate Chart under Forms & Reports).  Late payment penalty and interest can be avoided by paying in 90% of the current year's tax liability or 100% of the prior year's tax liability by January 15th.  Estimated tax payments are due on April 15th, June 15th, September 15th and January 15th of each year.  Maumee Estimated Tax forms and instructions can be obtained by calling 419-897-7120 or on our website http://www.maumee.org/city_departments/forms_and_reports.php.

This area is within the MMT JEDZ (Maumee, Monclova & Toledo Joint Economic Development Zone), with an income tax rate of 1.5%.  Click on Forms & Reports below.
