Qualifying Wages

The earnings tax of 1% applies to all who live, work, operate a business within, or do business within the City of Madeira. The 1% earnings tax is levied on all earned income, gambling and lottery winnings.z

Taxable Income
This income includes, but is not limited to, salaries and wages (W-2 box 5 - medicare wages), commissions, employee contributions to deferred compensations plans, and other qualified and non-qualified retirement plans, housing allowance, stock option income, 1099 Misc., gambling, lottery winnings, net profit of any businesses, including Schedule C income, rental income, and other business activities.

Residents employed in another city where the tax rate is 1% or higher or whose wages are totally taxed by that city will receive credit not to exceed .9% for the amount of tax paid to that municipality. If a resident is only partially taxable to the city where employed, that portion of income, which is not taxed, becomes taxable to the City of Madeira at a rate of 1%, while the portion of income that was taxed at a rate of 1% or higher will receive credit for that tax paid not to exceed .9%.

Non-taxable Income
We do not tax interest, dividends, capital gains, pension, social security, and unemployment income.
