Tax season is right around the corner, so now is the time to start gathering your records, documents, and other important information and be on the lookout for your W-2s and 1099s. Don't throw away any mail or email containing "Important Tax Documents" without opening it first.
Sidney Income Tax Returns are due no later than Monday, April 18, 2022. All Sidney residents over the age of 18 are required to file a return (even those who had Sidney income tax withheld from their paycheck). If you lived in Sidney at any time during 2021 you are required to file a Sidney Income Tax Return. If you had no income taxable to the City of Sidney you may be eligible to file an Exemption Form.
Being a student has no effect on your Sidney income tax liability. All Sidney residents age 16 years or older are subject to Sidney income tax on their taxable income. However, if you are ages 16 or 17 and your employer has withheld 1.65% for Sidney income tax in 2021, you are exempt from filing a Sidney tax return.
Individual Tax Forms may be obtained at the Revenue Collections department at City Hall, or by visiting the City’s website.
Our office is open from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday to assist taxpayers with Sidney tax return preparation at no charge. Additionally, we will be open on Saturday, April 9 from 8:00 a.m. until noon to assist those taxpayers who are unable to visit during our normal office hours.
Residents should note that many online tax software programs do not automatically fill out a city return and if they do that information is not submitted electronically. Residents must print and submit the hardcopy city return documents.
Any taxpayer with questions is encouraged to visit our website, email Lesley Schweitzer, Income Tax Administrator, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the City of Sidney Revenue Collections Department, at 937-498-8111.
