Extension to File

Taxpayers who are granted a Federal or State extension are automatically granted an extension to file their Monroe tax return. While the Ohio Revised Code does not require the taxpayer to notify the local tax office, it is recommended to do so.

Notify the Tax Office

Notifying the tax office of the extension prior to filing the return is encouraged for the following reasons:

  • It helps the Tax Office to more effectively utilize tax revenue, which is mutually beneficial to the city and the community it serves.
  • It helps to keep the Tax Office accounts in a current status.
  • It reduces unnecessary correspondence to residents.

If you would like to notify the tax office of your extension, please email the tax office with the word "Extension" in the subject line.  Please include your full name and address in the email. The extension should be attached to the email or submitted with your Local Income Tax return.

You can also complete the online individual form or online business form (coming soon). 

Please remember the extension to file does not extend the time to pay.
