WILMINGTON — The 2015 City of Wilmington Individual and Business Tax Returns are due Monday, April 18, reminds City Treasurer Paul R. Fear.
All City of Wilmington residents are required to file regardless of employment status or the tax being withheld by the employer, said Tax Commissioner Marque V. Jones. Only residents living inside the city limits must file. If you do not work in Wilmington, but do not live inside the City of Wilmington, you do not have to file a return unless your employer does not withhold the tax.
Retirees who have no earned income can write their Social Security number on the return, sign the return and mail it to the tax office.
If your child has earned income, he/she must file a city tax return. There are no age or income minimums.
The Wilmington Income Tax Ordinance requires city residents that do not have the city tax withheld from their paycheck, are required to file a declaration of estimated tax in 2016. Once the declaration is filed, quarterly payments are required to be paid. If the quarterly payments are not made, penalty and interest can be applied to the tax due.
To assist anyone not receiving a form, city tax forms are available at the Wilmington Income Tax office and the Wilmington Public Library. Forms are also available at www.ci.wilmington.oh.us on the city’s website under the Government link to income tax.
The city income tax office is located on the first floor of the Municipal Building, 69 N. South St. Taxpayers can enter the office directly off of South Street without going into the municipal building lobby. The tax office is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday; phone 937-382-1880.
