  • All residents are required, by law, to file an annual income tax return within the city/town that they reside. You will need to notify the fiscal officer, Tracy Overmyer, of your move in date and all your pertinent information and to set up your income tax account.
  • To establish an account with the Utilities Department, go to 102 E Sixth Street- Utilities Department.

  • No, the Village of Genoa does not provide gas. You need to establish an account with Columbia Gas or another heating fuel company.
  • Genoa tax returns are to be filed by April 15 of every year.
  • Yes, this credit is up to 50 % of Genoa’s tax rate of 11/2 % (or .0075). To get the most credit other municipalities tax rate must be 11/2% or higher
  • To figure the credit, multiply wages paid by credit allowed.

    EXAMPLE:
    Genoa tax due on $10,000.00 is 10,000 x .015 = $150.00
    Wages were taxed by Toledo,
    therefore a credit can be taken of 10,000.00 x .0075 = $75.00
    TAXES DUE TO GENOA – $75.00

    If the wages of 10,000 were taxed at 1%, then:

     Genoa Tax   $150.00
     Credit of .005$50.00
     TAXES DUE GENOA$100.00
  • Come into the office at 102 E Sixth Street and fill out an application for a Zoning Permit.
