The City of Hillsboro has a 1.5% income tax on qualifying wages, bonuses, commissions, tips, deferred compensation etc. and also, on the net profits of businesses, rental properties, and farm income. This applies to all who live, work, or operate a business in the City of Hillsboro. You need to file a return even if there is a financial loss. Interest, dividends, retirement, social security, military pay and unemployment compensation are not taxable.

The City of Hillsboro requires mandatory filing which means that all City of Hillsboro residents are required to file a city tax return regardless of employment status or if the tax is being withheld by the employer.

Hillsboro allows credit for taxes paid to other cities up to our tax rate of 1.5%. Business losses may not offset W-2 wages.

The filing due date is April 15th or 4-months after fiscal year end. Extension requests must be made in writing and received by the tax office before the original due date of the return.

Please don't hesitate to call or stop in if you have any questions or need help in filing.
