Income Tax Office Update

Due to current public health concerns surrounding COVID-19, the Income Tax office will not be open to the public.

Completed returns, tax documents, payments and extension requests may be dropped off in the new drop off slot located in the north window on the front of the San Spring building, located at 480 Park Ave. Staff will be available Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 4:00 pm to answer questions by phone at 440-988-4212.

Tax Preparation Services Available

Even though we are unable to prepare tax returns face-to-face, we will prepare returns from documents that are mailed in or placed in the drop off slot.  Taxpayers can drop off their tax information 24 hours a day. Your information will be stored in a secure area until it can be retrieved by office personnel.

Your return will be prepared by our staff based on the information you provide. Along with a copy of the first page of your IRS 1040 form, it will be necessary to include a copy of each W2 form, any IRS forms showing income or loss such as Schedule C, E, or F and 1099s showing miscellaneous income not being reported on an IRS Schedule C. Please include your phone number in case we need to reach you for further information.  Your tax return will be prepared and mailed to you for signature and payment.
