Niles City Income Tax
The City of Niles joined the Regional Income Tax Agency, also known as R.I.T.A. to begin the collection of taxes for the City of Niles effective January 1, 2017.
The Regional Income Tax Agency provides services to collect income tax for municipalities in the State of Ohio. RITA’s Board of Trustees is authorized to administer and enforce the income tax laws of each of the participating municipalities.

RITA is also contracted by the City of Niles for comprehensive tax collection from registration through litigation.
