New for tax year 2016, 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.

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

1. It reduces unnecessary correspondence to residents;

2. It helps to keep the Tax Office accounts in a current status;

3. It helps the Tax Office to more effectively utilize tax revenue, which is mutually benefiting to the city and the community it serves.

If you would like to notify the tax office of your extension, please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with the word extension in the subject line.  Please include your full name and address in the email.

Please also remember, the extension does not extend the time to pay.
