1. If you live in the city AND work in the city, then you definitely pay the tax
2. If you live in the city and work outside of the city, you pay the tax.
3. If you just work in the city, but live outside, you pay a slightly lower tax than residents. (don't know exact anymore, but for instance, you may pay 3.5% versus the resident's paying 3.9%)
4. Only way to avoid the tax is to live and work outside of the city.

And I'm not positive, but I thought the city wage tax was 3.9% not 4.5% anymore.
