TAX INFORMATION FOR INDIVIDUALS:

ALL Full Year/Part Year residents are required to file a city income tax return whether or not a tax is due.

The filing due date for the 2016 tax year is Tuesday, April 18, 2017. Per the Ohio Revised Code (ORC) 718, a copy of the Federal 1040 must be attached to the city income tax return. If you are permanently retired or disabled, AND have NO taxable income, you may complete a one-time Declaration of Exemption Return for a permanent exemption. Please contact the Tax Administrator for additional questions. For all forms, please see the “Individual Tax Forms” tab below.

Estimated Tax Payments

Estimated payments are required if tax liability will exceed $200.00. Quarterly estimated tax payments are due April 15, June 15, September 15 and December 15 of each year. A 15% penalty for underpaid/unpaid estimated tax may apply. Please contact the Tax Administrator for additional questions.

Extensions

Any taxpayer that has filed a Federal 6-month extension will automatically receive an extension for the filing of a city income tax return. A COPY of the Federal extension must be attached to the city return when filed. An Extension of time to file under this chapter is not an extension of the time to pay any tax due unless the Tax Administrator grants an extension of that date. Contact the Tax Administrator for additional questions or grants of time.

Penalties and Interest

A monthly penalty of $25 for each failure to timely file each return, regardless of the liability shown thereon for each month, or any fraction thereof, shall be imposed. The penalty shall not exceed a total of $150. Interest shall be imposed at the rate defined for the year on all unpaid tax and unpaid estimated tax.
