JEDZ1 Info

On May 6th 2014 Springfield Township residents voted to establish a Joint Economic Development Zone (JEDZ).  All businesses and/or employers located within the JEDZ are responsible for withholding a one and one-half percent (1.5%) earnings tax on the wages of all employees working in the Zone effective August 1, 2014.  Additionally, businesses are responsible for the payment of a one and one-half percent (1.5%) earnings tax on the net profits attributable to the business located in the Zone effective August 1, 2014.

State law requires a partnering jurisdiction to implement any earnings tax for townships.  Springfield Township’s partnering jurisdiction is the City of Mt. Healthy. The collection of the tax will be conducted by the Regional Income Tax Agency (RITA), as it is the contracted agent for tax collection with Mt. Healthy.
