From The City of Delaware
Remember when April 15 came and went and you hadn’t filed your taxes (well, at least many of you)? That time is now right around the corner.
The City of Delaware has posted a handful of reminders to guide you through that process:
“The due date for filing and paying your City of Delaware 2019 annual tax return and for individual and business taxpayers is July 15. First and second quarter estimated payments for tax year 2020 will also be due on July 15. If you have any questions, please call the Taxation office at 740-203-1225.
Because of City Hall renovation work and the pandemic, we are not able to provide face-toface filing assistance. We are ready to assist by phone at 740-203-1225 Monday through Friday 8 am – 5 pm. or through email at email@example.com.
Taxes Made Easy
The City of Delaware’s online bill payment system, Official Payments, has a payment option to pay your tax due, make estimated payments, or other forms of tax due at www.delawareohio.net/income-tax. Returning this year is the City’s E-File tool, a convenient and secure way to file taxes online. The E-File tool is at www.delawareohio.net/income-tax.
Look for the Red Boxes
Tax returns and tax payments can be placed in the secure red drop box located on the east side of City Hall. For your convenience, we are adding a second secure red mailbox at Mingo Park to drop off your tax returns and payments. Both boxes will be checked multiple times each day by Tax office staff.
About Tax Filing in Delaware
All City of Delaware residents and resident businesses must file an annual return. The local income tax rate is 1.85 percent and applies to wages, salaries and other personal service compensation, and net profits of Delaware businesses.
The City provides residents a partial credit for taxes paid to another city. The credit is the lesser of .50 of the tax paid to the other city, or .00925 of the income taxed by the other city and Delaware.
