City Income Tax
Westlake has a 1.5 percent income tax, which is collected by and paid to the Regional Income Tax Agency (RITA). Westlake's tax rate is one of the lowest within Cuyahoga County. All residents are required to file a tax return with RITA by April 15 for the previous year. A 100 percent credit is granted for income tax paid to a community outside of Westlake to the extent that the taxes paid equal or exceed the taxes calculated as due to Westlake.
