Income Tax Division


The Income Tax Division provides administration of the City's Income Tax Ordinance and Rules and Regulations.  The tax rate effective 1/1/2011 is 2.25% with credit allowed for taxes paid to other cities up to 1.5%. Xenia residents who pay JEDD-01 tax may take full credit for this tax on their Xenia income tax return. Filing a tax return is mandatory, whether the resident has taxable income or not.  Tax information is confidential and will not be disclosed to a 3rd party without the taxpayer's written permission (click here for the 3rd party authorization form).

The Tax Tool (see link at left) may be used from January to the end of June to prepare and print or E-File your Xenia Income Tax Return for the previous year.  After reviewing the Tax Tool instructions, use the Tax Tool to generate your tax return.  You will need either your personalized website (for example, and pin that will be pre-printed on postcards mailed in late December or your account number to active your electronic account.  The Tax Tool will help you prepare your return, which you can then print and send to the Xenia Income Tax Division or E-File after uploading copies of your Federal return and all W-2s.  Do not attempt to file your Xenia Income Tax return electronically through any other tax preparation software since the City of Xenia will not receive your return.

Even if a tax preparer completes your Xenia Income Tax Return, the taxpayer is responsible for submitting the completed return to the Xenia Income Tax Division.  Businesses (filing under a Federal ID) may file electronically using the Ohio Business Gateway.  The City of Xenia also administers the Xenia Township-City of Xenia Joint Economic Development District AKA JEDD-01 AKA Tecumseh JEDD (click here for JEDD information).  The City of Xenia does not collect or administer Xenia City School Taxes. School taxes are collected and administered by the State of Ohio.
