Rocky River taxpayers recently received 3rd Quarter 2015 estimated tax bills from CCA (Central Collection Agency). It is timely to communicate about the City’s conversion to the Regional Income Tax Agency (RITA) from CCA beginning January 1, 2016.
Early in 2015, the City of Rocky River initiated a study to compare the service level and costs related to local income tax collection and administration. Using 2014 as the basis for comparison and acknowledging that there are some service level differences, it was found to be of financial benefit for the City to join the RITA.
The income tax rate of 2.00% (and related credit) that became effective January 1, 2015 will not change with the City’s conversion to RITA from CCA.
Both the 3rd and 4th Quarter 2015 estimated tax payments should be paid to CCA. CCA has credited (or will credit) those payments to your account as 2015 estimated payments. Your filing and payment information will be fowarded to RITA from CCA records and used to set up an individual account for you with RITA. Tax returns for 2015 taxes will be filed with RITA.
