If you answered yes to question 1 and any of 2 through 5, you need to file an individual return with the City of Fairfield. If you answered yes to question 6 or 7, you need to file a Fairfield business return. If you are not sure if you are a Fairfield resident look up your address and find municipalities and income tax rates through the State of Ohio's Tax Finder.
For example: You worked in Hamilton and Blue Ash. In Hamilton, your wages were $20,000 and taxes paid to Hamilton $400. In Blue Ash, your wages were $15,000 and taxes paid to Blue Ash were $180. The calculation would be as follows:Hamilton W-2: $400 divided by 2.0% = $20,000 multiplied by 1.5% = $300Blue Ash W-2: $180Total credit for taxes paid: $480Total taxes owed to Fairfield: $35,000 multiplied by 1.5% equals $525Balance owed: $525 minus $480, equals $45
This balance is due to Blue Ash's rate (1.2%) being lower than Fairfield's rate (1.5%). You cannot offset the credits by using all of Hamilton's credit with all of Blue Ash's credit. The money remains in the community in which you paid it; therefore, the City of Fairfield cannot allow credit above its rate.
