INCOME TAX

TAX RATE: 1.5% EFFECTIVE 1/1/2000

The Village of Archbold levies a 1.5% tax on all salaries, wages, commissions, and other compensation earned by residents, as well as income of non-residents for work done or services performed inside the Village. A full credit of 1.5% is given to residents for tax paid to other municipalities.

This tax is also levied on the net profits of all businesses operating in Archbold from sales made, work done, or services performed in the Village of Archbold. Every employer has the duty of collecting and withholding Archbold income tax on employees’ wages and is liable for the filing of returns and payment of such tax to the Village of Archbold Tax Department either monthly or quarterly as specified by Ordinance.

Chapter 33 of the Village of Archbold Income Tax Code levies this tax to provide funds for the purposes of design and installation of storm sewers; the acquisition of right-of-way for storm sewers and streets; debt retirement; parks and recreational programs; acquiring, constructing, and improving village streets, sidewalks, sewers and other capital improvements for the Village.
