In response to the coronavirus pandemic, all tax filing dates have been extended to July 15th instead of April 15th. Last week, the Ohio Tax Commissioner extended the due date for Ohio filing and payment of state income tax, which in turn has extended municipal income tax filings and payments. Municipal income returns and payments for tax year 2019 with a due date of April 15, 2020 have been extended to July 15, 2020. Estimated payments for the first and second quarters of tax year 2020 have also been extended to July 15, 2020.
Silverton’s Tax Specialist is available to answer your tax questions or offer you assistance because she is working hard remotely. If you need her help, email her at [email protected].
While it is wonderful that our tax filing deadlines have been extended, the Village of Silverton urges you to go ahead and file your tax returns as soon as practical given your personal situation. An extended filing deadline will not change your tax refund or tax liability for last year’s taxes. If you can, please file your Silverton taxes as if the deadline were still April 15th.
Ohio Director of Health Amy Acton has issued an order for all Ohioans to “Stay at Home” effective on Monday, March 23rd at 11:59pm through April 6. Essential employees as defined in Director Acton’s order are exempt.
The Village of Silverton urges all residents to read this order and comply with it. Emergency services remain available for those who need them.
The entire order is attached.
Effective starting at 9 a.m. on March 19, 2020, The Village of Silverton will be discontinuing all non-emergency services. This action has been taken to protect the public and Village employees from possible Corona Virus contamination.
No specific date has been set for offices to reopen and non-emergency services to resume. The earliest this could happen is Monday, March 23, 2020, and this will depend on an assessment by the Village Manager to be made on Sunday.
Emergency services are continuing following new protocols set by the Hamilton County Sheriff and Deer Park Silverton Joint Fire District Fire Chief. If you have an emergency and need police or fire services, please dial 9-1-1.
If you do not have an emergency yet still need non-critical police or fire services, please dial 513-825-2280. A dispatcher will assist you with the appropriate help given the circumstances at the time. Silverton Mayor’s Court cases have been continued in progress until at least April.
Trash and recycling services are not changed at this time. Collections should occur on your street’s normal day of the week.
The Village fully anticipates extending the 2019 tax filing deadline, which is currently set by law for Wednesday, April 15th. Taxpayers are encouraged to file their 2019 returns on line at RITA if they are prepared to do so by going to www.ritaohio.com.
The Village encourages all residents to practice social distancing, shelter in place as much as possible, and take all necessary health precautions to limit the spread of the Corona Virus.
All cases scheduled for Silverton Mayor’s Court on May 6, 2020 are continued until June 3, 2020. All cases scheduled for court on May 20, 2020 are continued until June 17, 2020.
