Nick McWilliams reporting – With less than three weeks to go to tax day, residents are reminded to get their returns filed sooner rather than later. 

Falling on April 18th this year, the deadline to file is approaching faster than filers might think. 

The city of New Philadelphia Income Tax Department is urging residents to send in their city returns as soon as they can to prevent penalties and long wait times.

The staff can assist with simple returns if filers visit their office prior to April 7th.

To avoid waiting in line on Tax Day to drop off returns at the service window, Tax Administrator Vicki Daniels asks residents to consider mailing in returns now with all documentation and payment if required. 

Payments can be made online at via cash, check, or money order. To pay online, a six-digit tax ID number is required, which can be obtained by calling the tax office.

Business hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and an after hours dropbox is on the west side of the Knisely Municipal Center.

For more, contact the city tax department at (330) 364-4491, extension 1231.
