New Business Letter

Written by

Dear Huber Heights Business:

The City of Huber Heights imposes an Income Tax of 2.25% on Net Profits derived from conducting business within the City.   This letter outlines the requirements for filing and paying City Income Tax as a Business located in the City or a company conducting business within the City.

An annual return must be filed each year by April 15th or within three and one-half (3 1/2) months of the fiscal year end. The 2.25% tax is determined by the Federal Forms filed with the IRS   (Form 1120, 1120S and 1065).   If the company conducts business both inside and outside the City, a Schedule Y (Business Allocation Formula) determines the percentage of tax liability for the City.

If the company has employees working in Huber Heights it is required to withhold the 2.25% Income Tax on qualifying wages as defined in IRS Code Section 3121(a), (usually located in the Medicare Box of the W-2).   Medicare exempt employees are subject to the requirements for qualifying wages.

The withholding payments are either submitted monthly (if over $200. per month) or quarterly, to the Tax Office. The due dates for monthly withholding payments are the 15th of each month following the month of collection.  For quarterly withholding payments the due dates are the 15th of April, July, October and January. An Annual Reconciliation along with copies of W-2’s is due by February 28 of the following year.

If the company is Sole Proprietorship and the Business owner is a resident of the City of Huber Heights the resident will include the Schedule C on the Huber Heights Individual Income Tax Return. All other non-Huber Heights residents who earn Schedule C or E income must file a separate Business Return.

If an Extension of Time for filing is needed, a request must be submitted in writing to the Tax Office prior to the due date of the return. A copy of the Federal Extension can be used for this request.   An extension of time to file is not an extension of time to pay.  Penalties and interest may be charged on any tax balance remaining due after the original due date.  Also, quarterly estimated payments are to be paid by due dates for current tax year.

Please complete the Questionnaire and return to the Tax Office within fifteen (15) days from the date of this notice. Any questions, or if additional information in needed, please feel free to contact the Tax Office.

Tips on Using the Finance Transparency Portal

Written by


  • The portal allows you to explore budget and historical finances in a simple graphical user interface. The main view includes a chart or graph, a legend and various controls to view expenses by departments out of various funds.
  • You can always access the portal by navigating to 
  • You'll notice the title of the chart or graph you are viewing on top along with the account type selector. You can use the filter to see the data that is of most interest to you.
  • To focus on specific data - like a fund, department, expense type, or any combination - look to the left and use the menu on the side panel. These selectors allow you to specify exactly what breakdown you want the graph or table to represent. When you select "Filtered By" the data filter pops up and allows you to turn on or turn off selected filters for that category - funds, departments, expense type.
  • Keep in mind that some departments or expenses only receive funds from specific funds - if the department or expense is not funded from a particular fund, it will be grayed out.
  • There are five different types of visual representations of the data - an area graph, an area graph by percentage, a line graph, a pie chart and a table. You can change your view at any time by simply selecting the different type of representation. The data will automatically convert. These functions are on the top right.
  • You can also download the data into a .csv spreadsheet or a .png image.
  • You can share the data, in any view, on a social network or by email.
  • Some expenditures or revenues do not track year to year. For example, there may be expenditure for a specific item or project in FY 2013 that the City no longer uses.  These expenditure categories will only be visible for the years they were used. After that, they will be zeroed out.
  • If you need assistance or have questions, please contact our Finance Department at 937-237-5826 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
