Income Tax Department


To all Wellington Residents and Businesses:
Effective January 1, 2013, the Regional Income Tax Agency also known as R.I.T.A. will begin collecting income taxes for the Village of Wellington. Council chose the Regional Income Tax Agency for its ability to offer residents and businesses free on-line filing and payments and to maximize the Village’s tax collection efforts.  R.I.T.A. will be responsible for the administration and collection of all income taxes and will serve as an Agent of the Village of Wellington in this capacity.

After January 1, 2013, all Village of Wellington tax payments and tax forms, for current or prior tax years, are to be sent to R.I.T.A.  We encourage you to utilize R.I.T.A.’s electronic filing and payment system as it is fast and simple to use, and it is secure and free.  The system will be available for your use beginning February 15, 2013.  R.I.T.A.’s website is
