tax through your place of employment, your tax rate would be .5%.
Taxes are due by April 15.

filing their income tax returns and the fact that almost 70% of
individuals are qualified to efile, starting with 2011 income tax year,

Collection Agency will continue to send a representative

any questions you may have throughout the year
and can fill out your return for you.
Just bring your Tax Return and W-2's, and all related schedules to the Municipal Offices Mondays, Wednesdays, or Fridays from 9:00 - 3:00.
All people owing income tax are required to have 90% of their tax due, or the amount based on 100% of the prior year tax liability, paid before January 31 of the filing year in order to avoid penalty & interest charges being added to your

office if you have any questions.
