Tiffin, Ohio — As the new tax season approaches, residents of Tiffin should be aware that the deadline to e-file their 2021 income taxes on the City of Tiffin website is closing soon.

The Tiffin Tax Department announced Friday that the e-file website will be updated and will no longer support the filing of 2021 tax returns after January 16. Those who haven’t filed their 2021 taxes can still file via paper copy.

The e-file system will be open to begin accepting 2022 tax returns by January 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 recently with tips for filing taxes. Here are some important points to keep in mind as residents 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 residents have received this postcard, they have an active account with the City of Tiffin and must file a tax return. If residents do not have any taxable income, they should file an individual exemption form available in the office or on the website.
  • How to file: Residents may file using the new E-file program or they may file a paper return and mail or drop off the prepared return at the City of Tiffin Income Tax Department, located at 53 E. Market St. City returns prepared using an online program for federal and state returns are not forwarded to the office.
  • Where to get a form: Blank forms are available at the City of Tiffin Income Tax Department, the Tiffin Post Office, located at 175 S. Monroe St., and the Tiffin-Seneca Public Library, located at 77 Jefferson St. Forms and additional filing information may be downloaded at www.tiffinohio.gov/tax.
  • What must be included: All W-2s, W2Gs, 1099NECs, 1099MISCs, and a copy of the federal 1040 including Schedule 1, C, E, and F if applicable.
  • Where to get help with the return: The tax office no longer offers in-person assistance preparing tax returns. However, residents may call the tax office at (419) 448-5405 for assistance weekdays from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. if they have questions about filing their return.
  • What if I owe?: Payment is due by April 18 or at the time of filing the 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). Residents may also pay online by credit card (fee charged) or e-check using E-pay.

A reminder, that estimated tax payments are required if residents have income on which tax is not withheld, and the amount they 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.

If residents have any additional questions, they can contact the office at [email protected] or call (419) 448-5405.
