The Bryan City Tax Department is available to assist you in completing your city tax returns and answer any questions you may have about your tax filing.

The Bryan City income tax was implemented in 1967. The current tax rate is 1.8% and is levied on wages and net profits of any business operating in Bryan, both resident and non-resident. You may refer to the General Information section of the instructions form for information of what income is considered taxable, credit for local tax paid to other cities, penalty and interest, part year calculations, etc.. Net operating loss carry forward is NOT allowed for net-profit businesses until tax year 2017 filed in 2018.

Mandatory filing is required for all residents of Bryan who are eighteen years of age or older, even if the resident has no taxable income and/or does not file a federal income tax return. If there is no taxable income to report, the Bryan return must be filed stating the work status of the tax payer, ex: unemployed, workers compensation, retired, etc.

Income tax return due date is the same as your federal income tax return due date: April 15th or the revised federal due date.

Every employer is deemed to be a trustee of the City of Bryan in collecting and withholding of the Bryan income tax on employee's wages and is liable to the City for the payment of such tax, whether actually collected by the employer or not.

ESTIMATED TAX RETURNS

 

Any taxpayer, business or individual, is required to file an estimated tax form if the amount owed the City (over the withholding amounts) is $200.00 or more in a calendar year.


To clarify: If your Bryan tax is not fully withheld by your employer, you MUST make estimated tax payments using the following schedule to avoid an underpayment of estimated tax penalty if the estimated tax is $200.00 or greater for the year.
 

Filings are due the 15th of the month as follows:

 

         22.5% by April 15, 2016

         45% by June 15, 2016

         67.5% by September 15, 2016

         90% by December 15, 2016

 

Failure to have 90% of your Bryan tax liability paid via withholding credits and/or estimated payments will result in a penalty of 15% of the amount not timely paid.  This penalty applies to each quarter that was not timely paid.  You may also avoid this penalty by having 100% of your previous year’s Bryan tax liability paid via withholding credits and/or estimated payments by the April 15th due date or the federal revised due date.

 

Interest for tax year 2016 and beyond is changing to an annualized rate based on the Federal Reserve rate for the prior year plus 5%.
