City Treasurer And Tax Department

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

*** Updated 3/26/2020 at 3:00 p.m. ***

Dear Citizens:

Today, Governor DeWine signed a bill into law that extends all State and Municipal tax filing deadlines for the 2019 Individual and Corporate Net Profit filings and payments and 2020 Estimated Tax filings and payments to July 15th.  There is too much information to provide regarding this extension on this small page.  Click here to see an informational flyer on how this extension may affect your filing and payments. 

Our office remains closed to the public until it is determined by health officials that it is safe for us to reopen.  We have two priorities as elected and appointed officials.  Our first priority is to provide for the health and safety of the public and our staff.  Our second priority is to provide the citizens of Newark with the high quality services they deserve. 

While some of our services are curtailed during the Covid-19 crisis, we are doing all that we can to meet the needs of the public.  We ask for your patience and cooperation as we all move through these difficult times.

Though our office is closed to the public, our staff is still avaialbe during normal business hours to provide information by email at citytax AT newarkohio DOT net or by phone at 740-670-7580.

Additional information will be provided on this page as it becomes available over the next few weeks.  We look forward to serving you and hope to be back to normal operation soon.
