Oxford extends city income tax return deadline to May 17


The City of Oxford extended the deadline for submitting municipal income tax returns to Monday, May 17 from the original April 15 deadline. 

Tax files that are submitted on the new deadline by 11:59 p.m. will not be flagged as a penalty or interest for late filing. The city followed suit of the federal government when the national deadline for tax returns was delayed a month because of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

According to Ohio’s Regional Income Tax Agency website, residents of municipalities in Ohio who are 18 years of age and older are required to file an annual tax return, even if no tax is due. If an individual worked in a municipality of Ohio but does not live in that municipality, they must file if their employer did not fully withhold for the municipality you worked. 

If you are electronically filing a tax return, no documentation is required at the time of filing. The Regional Income Tax Agency may request documentation after your filing is reviewed. If you file a paper return, you will be required to submit the following forms: W-2 Form(s); Federal Form 1040; 1099 Form(s); Federal Schedule A; Federal Schedule C; Federal Schedule E; Federal Schedule F; Federal Schedule K-1(s)

If you are unable to pay your taxes in full, you may request a payment plan by contacting the Collections Department at 800.860.7482. At least $250 of what you owe must already be filed with the Regional Income Tax Agency.
