Ashtabula tax forms in mail

ASHTABULA —   Check your mail this week because postal carriers are delivering 2012 city income tax returns.

All residents and partial year city residents who are 18 years of age or older at the end of 2012, regardless of whether tax is due, must file a tax return, said Lori Mackey, city treasurer.

All non-residents who received compensation for work done or services performed in the city, whose employer did not withhold city income tax also must file.

Retired residents are exempted. If a retired residents has filed a return in the past indicating a date of retirement, has earned no income and does not receive a postcard in the mail, he or she does not have to file a tax return.

Tax returns received or postmarked after the April 15 due date will be assessed a $50 penalty, and if tax is due, 12 percent interest will be added.  An approved copy of a federal extension, filed in the City Income Tax Office on or before the April 15 deadline, will be the only reason penalty and interest will not apply to a return filed after the due date.

Tax forms are available on the city  web site www.cityofashtabula.com under the city departments tab and then Income Tax.  If a city resident cannot obtain the required tax forms online, they are available at the city Income Tax Office in the Municipal building.

The interactive form www.cityofashtabula.com has been updated. You may type in the tax filing year at the top of the form and the correct PDF Form will load.  Enter your information into the form and it will automatically calculate your tax.

 You must print the form, sign it and return it to the tax office. The form can not be sent electronically. Failure of a taxpayer to procure a tax return does not excuse that individual from filing and paying any tax due by the deadline.
