City of Tiffin Tax Department preparing for 2022 tax returns
TIFFIN, Ohio – January 13, 2023 – As the new tax season approaches, Tiffin residents should be aware that the deadline to e-file their 2021 income taxes on the City of Tiffin website is closing soon.
As the City of Tiffin Tax Department prepares to begin receiving 2022 tax returns, the Tiffin tax e-file website will be updated and will no longer support filing of 2021 tax returns after Jan. 16. For those who haven’t filed their 2021 taxes, they will still be able to file via paper copy.
The e-file system should be open to begin accepting 2022 tax returns by Jan. 23, the same date that the IRS expects to begin accepting federal income tax returns.
Residents may have received a blue postcard in the mail the past few weeks with tips for filing taxes. Here is some information to keep in mind as you prepare to file:
• Who must file? All residents age 18 and older and all entities or individuals doing business within Tiffin must file a tax return. In January, taxpayers should have received a turquoise postcard in the mail. If you have received this postcard, you have an active account with the City of Tiffin and must file a tax return. If you do not have any taxable income, please file an individual exemption form available in our office or on our website.
• How do I file? You may file using our new E-file program or you may file a paper return and mail or drop off the prepared return at the City of Tiffin Income Tax Department, 53 E. Market St. Please note that City returns prepared using an online program for your Federal and State returns are not forwarded to our office.
• Where do I get a form? Blank forms are available at the City of Tiffin Income Tax Department, 53 E. Market St.; Tiffin Post Office 175 S. Monroe St.; and Tiffin-Seneca Public Library, 77 Jefferson St. Forms and additional filing information may be downloaded at www.tiffinohio.gov/tax.
• What must I include? All W-2s, W2Gs, 1099NECs, 1099MISCs, and a copy of your Federal 1040 including Schedule 1, C, E, and F if applicable.
• Where can I get help with my return? The tax office no longer offers in person assistance preparing tax returns, however if you have questions regarding filing your return, you may call the tax office at (419) 448-5405 for assistance weekdays from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
• What if I owe? Payment is due by April 18 or at the time you file your return. If not paid by the due date, a late payment penalty of 15 percent plus interest will be charged. Payment forms accepted are cash, check or credit card (fee charged). You may also pay online by credit card (fee charged) or e-check using E-pay.
• A reminder, that estimated tax payments are required if you have income on which tax is not withheld, and the amount you expect to owe for 2022 is more than $200. An underpayment penalty of 15 percent plus interest will be applied to any underpayment of estimated tax.
