Income Tax

The City of Clayton income tax for those living and working in Clayton is 1.5%, however residents working outside the City, receive an resident tax reduction of 50%.  Residents working outside the City and paying employment tax to another taxing community who estimate they will owe at least $200.00 in municipal tax (after subtracting withholding to the City and any credits), must file a declaration of estimated tax and make quarterly payments with all payments due by January 15th of the  following year.

CCA - Division of Taxation

In an effort to reduce the cost of services and improve accessibility to residents, Clayton has entered into a contract with CCA - Division of Taxation to collect municipal income taxes. CCA allows for easier access for residents and businesses. CCA offers online filing and payment of tax bills. You can also visit CCA website.
