It’s the time of the year to prepare, and file income tax forms with Federal, State, and Local tax agencies. The Regional Income Tax Agency (RITA) will be administering the collection and processing of our local income tax for individual residents and businesses. This year a new online process seeks to streamline the task for most taxpayers. Instead of printing out forms and mailing or faxing, the available E-File in My Accounts makes the process quick and easy. All Village residents 18 and older must file a return if they have taxable income, whether or not they owe any additional tax. Seniors who do not have any taxable income should file a one time Individual Declaration of Exemption. Forms are available at the Village Hall, Library, and online at www.ritaohio.com. Customer service representatives can be reached at 1-800-860-7482 to answer any questions.
Welcome to Sugarcreek!
Welcome to the Official Site of the Village of Sugarcreek. Nestled in the rolling hills of Tuscarawas County, our Ohio town is proud to trace its heritage back to our numerous Swiss and German settlers. Hence, we’ve been known not only as a part of Ohio’s Amish Country, but also as the “Little Switzerland of Ohio.”
Today our village provides services to more than 4,000 Sugarcreek and area residents via the Sugarcreek Fire, Police, Water, Waste Water, and Street Departments. We also count on the Swiss Valley Joint Ambulance Service to help those in need.
Our Village offices are staffed with a full-time Administrator, Fiscal Officer and Utilities Clerk. Our village matters are handled by way of an elected six-member council that normally meets the first and third Monday of each month.
Garaway Local Schools, our local public school district, consistently ranks as one of the best in the state and some of our businesses have grown to be known nationally, you can find a complete list of local businesses by following the link to the Sugarcreek Business Association at the top of this page.
We’re proud of our heritage and the sense of community that has developed here. I hope you’ll take a little time to explore our Web sites and find something that interests you. If you don’t live here already, consider moving here and becoming a part of something great.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions at 330.852.4112.
