Am I able to set up a payment plan with City Tax Administration?
At this time, payment plans are not available. In order to avoid additional penalty and interest charges, you should pay your assessment in full by the due date of the return. If you are unable to pay in full, we recommend that you pay as much as you can, as often as you can.
If you are sending in a partial payment, make a copy of the voucher attached to your letter and mail with each payment. The mailing address for your payment is provided on the bottom of the voucher. Write the last four digits of the primary filer's social security number on the check/money order. This will ensure accurate and timely processing of your payment. Failure to pay assessment amounts in full by the due date may result in the referral of your account to a Collection Agency.
How do I pay my e-filed return?
To avoid penalty and interest, payment of taxes due should be made on or before April 15, 2021.
There are two ways to pay tax due on e-filed returns:
- Direct Debit. Payment on a tax due return can be made using direct debit at the time the return is efiled, when supported by the software.
- Or, submit your payment with form 5122, City Income Tax e-file Payment Voucher (CITY-V). Your tax preparer or computer software will provide a copy of the form. Do not include a copy of your e-filed return with your payment.
Payments are not accepted via telephone.
How do I pay my paper filed return?
Follow the instructions provided on the return and submit payment via check or money order.
What if my payment is made after the due date?
Penalty accrues monthly at one percent of the tax due, and increases by an additional one percent per month, or fraction thereof (e.g., penalty on a $500 tax due will be $30 if the tax is unpaid for six months). The interest rate is 1 percent above the adjusted prime rate and is adjusted on January 1 and July 1 of each year. Interest is charged from the original due date of the return to the date the balance of the tax is paid. View current interest rates on Treasury’s Web site or call 517-636-5829
When is my payment due?
Payment of your 2020 tax due return must be received on or before April 15, 2021. If payment is late, penalty and interest will be added to your tax due and will continue to accrue until the amount is paid in full. If your check is returned as unpaid, you may receive a billing for a returned check fee. For additional information, view "What if my payment is made after the due date?".
