Income Tax Filing Requirement
Golf Manor ordinance requires all Golf Manor residents (including those retired), landlords and business owners to file an income tax return each year, on or before April 15th, whether or not tax is due.
Retired Golf Manor residents (and spouses) are not required to file a tax return provided they have registered with the Village Tax Department as “retired” and have not earned any additional taxable income during the year.
New residents and businesses are required to register with the Golf Manor Tax Department upon moving into the Village, indicating the specific date of residency.
Property owners of rental property within the corporate limits of the Village are required to submit to the Tax Commissioner a Landlord/Tenant Report detailing the names, addresses, telephone numbers and place of employment (if available) for each tenant (Section 729.01) living in rental property of any kind on or before July 31 of each year and December 31 of each year.
Taxable income is all gross wages, salaries and other compensation received and the net profits from the operation of a business, profession or other activity. Taxable income includes regular pay, overtine, sick pay, vacation pay, tips, bonuses, profit sharing, severance pay, unemployment compensation, gambling winnings and insurance premium payments by employers shown on the W-2.
A 1.7% tax is due on all taxable income including gross salaries, wages, tips, unemployment compensation or other compensation earned for work or services performed within the Village. This same tax is assessed on the net profits of businesses operating within the Village.
The Village allows residents a credit up to 1.7% for the amount of taxes that have been paid to another municipality. To receive credit for tax paid to other municipalities, proof of payment (i.e. a W-2 form) must be provided with your tax return.

How to File & Assistance
The Village of Golf Manor does not mail tax forms to residents. Resident and business tax forms, as well as landlord/tenant registration forms, are available at the Golf Manor Tax Department and on this website here.
Along with your tax return form, Golf Manor requires the following documentation:
- The front page of your Federal 1040
- All W-2’s, 1099’s, Federal Schedule C and/or Federal Schedule E forms
The above items are due at the time of filing and must accompany your return with any payment due to be considered “complete.” Incomplete returns will not be accepted.
Completed tax returns, attached required documentation, and any payments due must be received on the tax due date. They may be mailed by postal mail or submitted in person to the Golf Manor Tax Department at 6450 Wiehe Road, Golf Manor, OH 45237.
Registration forms can be submitted in person, postal mail or by email.
- A request for an extension must be filed with the Tax Department on or before 9 am April 16 along with an 80% estimated payment of tax. An IRS extension does not create an automatic extension with the Village.
- If a tax return or extension request is not filed by the due date, there will be a minimum penalty charge of $75.00 (even if no taxes are due). There is also a penalty of $75.00 plus interest for untimely payment.
- Confirmations will be mailed back only if a pre-addressed, self-stamped envelope is included with the filed return.
- Business losses cannot be deducted from W-2 or 1099 income.
- Declaration of estimated income tax is required for taxpayers that have had a tax liability in prior years.
