The Department of Finance has the responsibility of creating budgets, reports, issuing purchase orders, employee payroll, and many other financial functions.

As budgets are developed, the department is called upon by Council to provide a breakdown of costs so Council can come to an informed decision as to how City resources will be spent. Throughout the year, the Finance Department advises Council as to the condition of the budget.

The Regional Income Tax Agency (R.I.T.A.) is the City's agent to collect the City's income tax. Forms are available at the Finance Department and from R.I.T.A. The income tax rate for Seven Hills is 2% with a 1.1% credit for city taxes paid to your city of employment outside of Seven Hills.

City tax returns should be filed with R.I.T.A. by April 15th each year. Be careful when filing on the internet since not all tax software is capable of filing the city return with the Federal and State tax returns. R.I.T.A. has a web site ( where city tax returns can be filed.
