The City of Kettering partners with Wright State University every two years to conduct a Kettering Resident Satisfaction Survey.  Emails with a link to the online survey went out yesterday from Carol Murray, our partner at Wright State, to a randomly selected group of Kettering residents.  If you received an email it is a valid survey and we appreciate you taking the time to provide your feedback.

Mandatory Filing

Current Tax Rate: 2.25%

Mandatory Filing Affects Every Resident

The City of Kettering has a mandatory filing requirement which means that all residents of the City of Kettering (18 years of age and older) are required to file a city income tax return with the Tax Division on an annual basis. The mandatory filing requirement went into effect beginning with returns for tax year 2012. Mandatory filing also applies to persons who in the past did not have to file a return with Kettering because they had Kettering tax fully withheld from their wages.
The term “resident” applies to anyone whose permanent legal residence is located in the City of Kettering. This includes persons who own their homes and those who rent the apartment or home in which they live. If you have questions about your residency status, please contact the Tax Division.

Exceptions To Mandatory Filing Requirement

Permanently retired or permanently disabled persons with only non-taxable income for city purposes (such as social security, pensions, interest, and dividends) may file for a permanent exemption from the mandatory filing requirement by completing the Declaration of Exemption Return.
