Income Tax Division

Income Tax

Since 1970, the City of Jackson is one of 22 cities that have a local income tax. Any citizen of Jackson that makes over $600 a year must file a form and pay 1% to the city. All non-residents that work in the city must file and pay ½ of 1% to our city. All corporations and partnerships are subject to the 1% tax. Our office handles over 30,000 income tax forms a year.

City of Jackson Income Tax submissions are due on April 30 of each year. If April 30 falls on a Saturday or Sunday, tax submissions are due the following business day. The Income Tax Division is administered by the City Treasurer's Office, which is located on the First Floor of City Hall, 161 W. Michigan Ave. 

Income Tax Forms

All income tax forms are audited for accuracy. Forms are available at the City Treasurer's Office or by using income tax forms links available on this page.
