Huntington County one of eight in state to see income tax rise in 2019

Huntington is one of eight Indiana counties in which the county income tax rate will increase after the first of the year.

The rate in Huntington County will go from 1.75 percent to 1.95 percent.

The other counties with rate increases are Carroll, Cass, Dearborn, Grant, Hancock, Jennings and White counties.

Local income tax rates are determined by county officials and reported to the Indiana Department of Revenue (DOR). Once reported, they are then reviewed for compliance with Indiana law.

These tax rates affect businesses with employees who live or work in any of these counties and have income tax withholdings. County tax rates for individuals are based on the employee’s Indiana county of residence as of Jan. 1, 2019.

The list of rates for all Indiana counties is available on DOR’s website in Departmental Notice 1 at www.dor.in.gov by clicking on “Tax Library” under the “Legal Resources” tab on the left navigation and then selecting “Departmental Notices.”

Employers with questions about these county income tax rates can contact DOR at 317-233-4016, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
