Are we the only state to get taxed where we work AND where we live?

Was just looking some stuff up and it seems Ohio can tax everything! School district, city, who knows what else. I believe 13 other states can tax locally.

I guess since we don't get taxed on food it is okay. :screwy:

Earnings taxes are fair and good.

Correct, but I don't work in Pataskala. I work in Deleware and pay my dues, now Pataskala wants money. We didn't even know about this. So now we have to pay 2011 and 2012 local taxes. Figured since my employer was already withholding local taxes we were set. Guess not! just didn't even know you had to pay for both local taxes until tonight.

Are you sure you will end up paying at both places? You will have to file both places for sure, but there may be a reciprocity agreement between the two towns. The town where I work has a higher rate than where I live and I get credit for the taxes I pay there when I file where I live.

I have never paid income tax to two municipalities; everywhere I've lived has reciprocated with nearby towns. Check to make sure Pataskala doesn't give you credit for the taxes you've already paid to Delaware.

Oh, and you only have to file a return to the place you live, not to where you work.

^^^You are right. I was thinking of the 2 years I was a self-employed contractor. I had to file in the town I lived and in the town where I was doing work. If you are employed by someone else, they have to file the necessary paperwork.

Just found out. Pataskala doesn't take any tax credits for a different city.

So I paid $450 to Columbus (3 month) and $350 to Deleware (rest of the year) and now 1% to Pataskala ($280).

Give me a break, this is ridiculous.

Well, you have three choices: Get a job in Pataskala, move, or pay your taxes.

If you'd have known Pataskala did not offer tax credits, would you have moved there anyway?

I'm young 23. I've only been out on my own for a few years. I've always worked where I lived. Until just this year I actually work out of the same city. I don't mind, I believe you can pay it quarterly. Which is about $60 every 3 months for me....I just didn't know! Still sucks though.

I live in a township and pay higher property taxes but no income tax (townships cannot tax income) I work in a city but spend only 10% of my work day there (I drive a truck in OH, KY and IN and occasionally, MI) I only pay taxes on 10% of my work income to the city where the distribution center I deliver from is located.
