What is a local income tax?

A local income tax is a special tax on earned income collected by local governments like counties, cities, and school districts. Fourteen states including Michigan allow local governments to collect an income tax.

While the federal income tax and the Michigan income tax are progressive income taxes with multiple tax brackets, all local income taxes are flat-rate taxes which are the same for every taxpayer regardless of income.

Another major difference between local income taxes and federal or state taxes is that most local taxes are collected only on earned income, and not on capital gains or other non-earned income like interest and dividends.

How do you pay the Grayling income tax?

The Grayling income tax is due on April 15th, when you file your federal and state tax returns. Because calculating your local income tax is relatively simple compared to your other tax returns, many tax preparers will file your Grayling income tax return for free.

If you file your own taxes, the Grayling tax collector will likely mail you a copy of the tax forms you need by April. Unfortunately, many leading e-file providers (like TurboTax and H&R Block) do not support local income taxes. Grayling may have a proprietary e-filing system you can use alongside your state and federal e-filing provider.
