RITA Offers Several Options for Taxpayers to File Municipal Income Tax Returns for the 2021 Filing Season
Posted On: Friday, February 19, 2021
As the April 15th municipal income tax filing deadline approaches, RITA offers taxpayers several options for filing their municipal income tax returns, from online filing to secure drop boxes.
RITA has simplified the online filing process with itsFastFile and MyAccount options.
Traditional paper tax forms are available at RITAOhio.com as fillable pdf documents that taxpayers may complete, print and mail.
Taxpayers may also visit any one of the RITA's offices in Brecksville, Cleveland Heights, Worthington, Xenia or Youngstown and drop off either a completed tax return or uncompleted tax documents in a secure RITA drop box. Drop boxes are available 24/7 and located outside of each office. RITA's Mentor office location also has a drop box located inside the Mentor Municipal Center and is accessible during the hours of 8 am and 5 pm., Monday through Friday. RITA asks individuals using the drop box service to complete the Municipal Income Tax Drop-Off Sheetor provide contact information with the dropped-off documents.
All returns that are e-filed, postmarked or dropped off by April 15th will avoid late filing penalties.
"During this challenging time, we remain committed to make meeting your local tax obligation simple, fair, accurate and professional. We hope that every taxpayer will find a filing option that works best for them," said Don Smith, Executive Director of RITA.
