Cuyahoga Falls Mayor Don Robart has announced an enhancement to the Online Income Tax Preparer service available on the city’s website. Residents filing their city income tax online who owe no taxes and have no overpayment, will not have to mail their returns or documentation.
Residents can log on to the website at www.cityofcf.com and click on “Income Tax
The tax information is transmitted to the Income Tax Department where the
information is cross-checked with federal data to ensure accuracy. If taxes are
owed or if it's a business return, the return must be printed and sent to the
Income Tax Department with supporting tax documentation.
It is important to note, that during this process, income tax information is only being stored in the user's webpage. Once the user leaves the webpage the information is gone. The information entered is completely secure through a digital certificate, which means no one else can have access while the user is entering his or her tax information.
Though the Income Tax Preparer has been online since 2004, the return had to be
printed and sent to the city's Income Tax Department. This was necessary to verify the return. The city has recently partnered with CCA for assisting in collecting delinquent taxes and part of their service is to supply the city with federal data to electronically cross-check city returns for accuracy, which eliminates the need for paper forms and documentation.
This quick and easy process simplifies tax preparation for some residents and
eliminates paper and handling.
