Frequently Asked Questions

Which Amount Do I Use for Taxable Wages?

On your W-2, look at Box 5 and 18. Box 5 will be used for our taxable wages on the Germantown tax form. Local wages are usually in Box 18 with the tax paid in Box 19 and the location paid to in Box 20. These will be points of reference for information.

I Moved Into/out Of Germantown During The Year. Do I Need To File A Tax Return?

If you lived in Germantown more than one month, you are required to file a tax return. Your income and credits should be pro-rated for the time you lived in Germantown. Only the wages earned while you were a resident are taxable to Germantown.

I Don’t File Federal Or State Taxes. Do I Need To File A Germantown Return?

Yes, there is a mandatory filing requirement in Germantown. ALL residents over the age of 18 need to submit a signed tax return. If you do not have taxable income, you would simply sign the return in Section II and send the white copy back to us.

Storm Water Friendly Watering Tips

  • Direct your downspouts to a depressed area or a garden bed so water soaks into the yard instead of rushing out into the streets.
  • Use rain barrels to store rainwater from downspouts
  • Do not over water. Excessive watering can lead to runoff, which wastes both water and chemicals you may have added to your lawn.
  • Incorporate swales and berms to your landscaping so runoff is contained and does not leave your yard.
