City Income Tax

TAX FILING DAY MOVED TO MAY 17, 2021

The State of Ohio and municipal jurisdictions have followed the IRS and have extended the due date for filing income taxes to Monday, May 17 in response to pandemic-related concerns.  Like the city did last year, we'll be setting up a drive through drop off at City Hall on tax day.
