WHO PAYS BREWSTER INCOME TAX ?

WHAT INCOME IS TAXED:

 

            1. The wages, salaries, and other compensation earned from an employer in                                            Brewster is subject to the Village Income Tax

            2. The wages, salaries, and other compensation earned by a resident that is   
                   not subject to an Income Tax levied by another municipality.  Also applicable is                               the difference for any compensation in a community that has a lower tax rate
                   than Brewster.  For example, a Village resident works in community “A” that has
                   a 0.5% income tax rate.   The resident would owe taxes on wages and so forth to  
                   Brewster for the difference Brewster 1.0% and “A”s 0.5%.   There are very few 
                   municipals with a lower tax rate than 1.0%.

            3. Net profits of any business operating in the Village are subject to the    
                    Village Income Tax
