Persons who reside in Osakasayama as of January 1 (base date for assessment) each year and who have income above a set amount will be taxed individual municipal tax and prefectural resident’s tax. Individual municipal tax and prefectural resident’s tax is assessed on a per capita basis in which a uniform amount is applied and on an income basis in which the amount is calculated in accordance with a person’s income for the previous year. Persons who have an office, plant, or house in Osakasayama and who do not reside in the city as of January 1 (base date of assessment) each year are taxed only on a per capita basis. The prefectural resident’s tax is applied by Osaka Prefecture; however, the prefectural resident’s tax is paid together with the municipal tax to Osakasayama, with the city depositing the required amount with Osaka Prefecture. Tax notices are mailed to taxpayers in the beginning of June each year. Persons with payroll tax deductions will be mailed a notice for payment of tax by their wage payer by the end of May each year.
