During the month of April, contact via email is preferred and will result in a quicker response than calling in.

The tax auditors are often unable to answer the phone due to the high volume of walk-in residents requesting City tax preparation assistance.  When leaving a voicemail, please include:  your name, phone number, address and a brief explanation of your issue/question.  They will return your call as soon as possible in the order it was received.

According to the Better Business Bureau, 80% of Americans hire a professional to help them complete their taxes. If you are a Monroe resident and want to save some money on having your CITY tax return completed, you can bring your paperwork in to the Tax Department and they will assist you free of charge. The best way to take advantage of this free service offered to our residents without waiting in a long line is to file early. There is rarely a line before the April crunch.

If you are unable to make it to our office during normal business hours then Monroe’s Efile option might be for you. While not a true electronic filing, it is a tool to help you complete your return at a time that is convenient for you. Completed returns using the Efile option must be printed, signed and submitted with copies of your W2s, the front page of Federal 1040, any payment due, and any applicable Federal schedules such as C and/or E to the Tax Department on or before the tax filing deadline. Efile's can be completed and printed by visiting  www.mitstaxonline.com/monroe.

The City of Monroe has a mandatory filing requirement, if you are unsure if you need to file please don’t hesitate to contact the tax department (Vicky at This email address is being protected from spambots.
