This year, Medina residents will pay their municipal income taxes through the Regional Income Tax Agency instead of the Cleveland’s Central Collection Agency as in past years.
A RITA customer service representative said Thursday that tax information still is being processed and taxpayers will receive information in the mail soon.
Last year, City Council voted to switch to RITA, citing poor customer service with CCA and cost-savings, as much as $200,000 a year.
Taxpayers who need help with preparing forms or information, can receive assistance from RITA agents on the following days at the Medina Community Recreation Center, 855 Weymouth Road:
- noon to 5 p.m. March 14 in Room A;
- 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 7 in Room B/C.
Taxpayers should bring the following information:
- Social Security number for self and spouse;
- W2(s) from all employers and Form 1099(s);
- federal Schedule(s) C, E and F; federal forms K-1, 2106, 3903 and 1040;
- addresses and dates for each location taxpayer resided in 2017.
RITA agents will work with taxpayers on a first-come, first-serve basis.
For additional information, call RITA customer service at (800) 860-7482.
RITA, established in 1971, collects taxes for more than 250 municipalities in the state.
