Tax amnesty is a new one-time initiative launched by the City of Green Income Tax Division that allows taxpayers a chance to pay any delinquent/back income taxes without penalties and interest. This opportunity to “catch up” on your taxes includes both taxes due on returns that have not yet been filed as well as taxes due on tax returns previously filed but not yet paid. Please note: If you need help with completing your return, free Green tax return preparation and/or assistance is available at our office during the posted office hours. Appointments are highly recommended due to the ongoing pandemic.
The City of Green’s tax amnesty program is available November 2, 2020 through January 29, 2021.
Those taxpayers and businesses that have not yet paid the full tax amount due on their Green income taxes qualify for tax amnesty. This includes accounts referred for legal action as well as accounts collected by the Ohio Attorney General’s Office.
