All residents of Monroe with earned income are required to file an income tax return with the City. *Retired residents and individual taxpayers under the age of 18 years old, are only required to file a return if their income or liability meets Federal filing guidelines.* The local income tax rate is 2% and applies to gross wages, salaries and other personal service compensation, and net profits of Monroe businesses. Qualifying homeowner’s and their dependents (as listed on Federal 1040) are exempt from the .5% increase and taxed at a 1.5% rate.

Taxable income also includes gambling winnings, rents from property and/or any other profit from businesses. Social security, pensions, interest and dividends are not taxable.
