A W-2 supporting the credit to another city is required upon filing. The City requires mandatory, annual filing of income tax returns. All residents 18 years of age and older, and all businesses within the City, are required to file a return no later than April 15 (or 3 ½ months following the end of their fiscal year) regardless of whether or not a tax is due.

Failure to do so may result in a penalty assessment.
