Counties Change Their Income Tax Rates

December 16, 2015

Each time a county establishes a new county tax rate or adjusts an existing one, that information is reported to the Indiana Department of Revenue. This information is used to publish Departmental Notice #1, which lists the rates for all Indiana counties.

Eighteen counties changed their income tax rates effective Jan. 1, 2016. The rate changes are as follows:

  • Clinton – The resident rate is unchanged. The nonresident rate has decreased from .0075 to .005.
  • Delaware – The resident rate has increased from .0105 to .015. The nonresident rate has increased from .006 to .008625.
  • Fountain – The resident rate has increased from .011 to .0155. The nonresident rate has increased from .0035 to .005.
  • Franklin – The resident rate has increased from .0125 to .015. The nonresident rate is unchanged.
  • Gibson – The resident rate has increased from .005 to .007. The nonresident rate has increased from .005 to .0055.

These rates affect individuals and businesses that have income tax withholdings. But don’t worry – any rate changes effective Jan. 1, 2016, will not have any impact on the 2015 individual income tax filing.
