About Tax Filing in Dublin

All residents of Dublin (that are 18 and older) are required to file an income tax return with the City, regardless of where their income is earned. The local income tax rate is 2.0% and applies to gross wages, salaries, compensation, and net profits of businesses and rentals. The City of Dublin provides 100% credit up to 2.0% for taxes withheld or paid to the workplace municipality for individuals.

All businesses located in Dublin or those conducting business within the City are required to file an annual net profit return. All employers with employees working within the City of Dublin (including from their home) are required to withhold the tax of 2.0% and remit these withheld taxes to the Dublin Division of Taxation.

The revenue generated from income tax funds the majority of City-provided services and capital improvement projects. Income tax revenue is allocated 75% to the General Fund and 25% to the Capital Improvements Tax Fund. The income tax revenue allocated to the Capital Improvements Fund may only be used for capital improvements.

INDIVIDUALS – Ask yourself these questions:

  1. Was I over 18 and a resident of the City of Dublin for any portion of the tax year?
  2. Did I have any other earnings in Dublin from which at least 2.0% was not withheld?

Self-employment income, net income from rentals, tips, commissions, etc. are taxable to the City as earned income. If you have rental property in Dublin or other business income earned within Dublin, you must file a return even if you show a loss.

If you answered “yes” to either of these questions, you are required to file a Dublin income tax return. Forms and instructions are available on our web site or you may call the Division of Taxation at 614.410.4460.
