The City of Sylvania levies a tax of 1.5% on all salaries, wages, commissions and other compensation, and on net profits earned within the city, as well as on incomes of residents earned outside the city.   Credit is allowed for tax paid to other cities, but is limited to 1.5% of taxed income.

Employers within the city are required to withhold income tax on employee compensation and remit the tax to the city either monthly or quarterly, as required. Businesses and other individual taxpayers are required to pay their estimated tax quarterly and file a declaration annually.

Our auditors are glad to help you with any tax-related needs, including preparing your return. We’re available 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Be sure to bring your federal return and all related schedules, along with your W-2s and/or 1099s, to our office.
