Income Tax Information

The Village currently has a 2% income tax on all salaries, wages, commissions and other financial compensation for everyone 18 and older, who lives in or performs work within the Village.  You will receive credit up to 2% for taxes paid to other municipalities.

If you are retired and have no other income, you are not required to file a return. If you have recently retired, please call Village Hall to update your status information. 
Child support, military pay, pensions, interest, dividends  and unemployment payments are not taxable; be sure to include all supporting documents with the return such as W-2’, 1099’S Schedule C’s, etc. Click here for Income Tax FAQ'S.
The Income Tax office no longer mails out tax forms to our residents.  All of our Income Tax forms are available online and at Village Hall.  During the tax season, the village income tax form is also available at  the Doylestown Post Office, and the Doylestown Library. If you would like one mailed to you, please call the Clerk's office to request one.  Online forms are available to the left in the box marked "Income Tax Forms".
