Do I need to file a return?
Consider these questions:
1) Are you a resident of Fairfield?
2) Are you over the age of 18?
3) Are you retired or disabled and without any earned income?
4) Are you over the age of 16 and working?
5) Are you self-employed?
6) Are you a business working in Fairfield?
7) Are you a business located in Fairfield?


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.
