City Buildings Closed Thur April 30th

To protect our citizens and stem the spread of COVID-19, on 3/23/20, all City Buildings will be closed thru April 30th, 2020. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

In accordance with the Governor’s order to extend the social distancing period, the Tipp City Government Center will remain closed to the public through the end of April. During this time, City employees are working a combination of work from home and limited office hours. Mail placed in the night drop (in the vestibule at the Government Center) is being attended to daily. Mail received from the Post Office is processed at least three days per week. If you leave a phone message for the income tax or utility departments we are trying to return those messages within 24 hours. Residents are encouraged to continue to make utility payments by the 10th of the month. The income tax filing deadline was extended to July 15, 2020, but if you drop off your return in the night drop you’ll avoid the July rush. Take care of yourselves and the City employees look forward to seeing everything get back to normal in May.

The City of Tipp City is temporarily suspending disconnection of utility services for non-payment from March 23rd through April 25th. The temporary suspension should not be considered a reason to not pay your utility bill. Customers may pay online with a credit card (convenience fees apply) or you may still access the night deposit box to pay utility bills. After April 25th delinquent utility accounts will be reviewed and the need for service disconnections will be determined by the Finance Director on a case by case basis to ensure that delinquent balances do not become so excessive that they cannot be brought current within a reasonable time.

To initiate new utility services please visit www.tippcityohio.gov and scroll down on the main page to Residential Utility Application Packet, open the packet and follow the directions on the first page.

To stop existing utility services please e-mail your request to utilitybilling@tippcity.net. You will receive a reply to your request confirming receipt.

Tax filing date extended from April 15, 2020 to July 15, 2020.
On March 25, 2020 the Ohio General Assembly adopted House Bill (HB) 197. This legislation, in part, extends the tax filing deadline for the State of Ohio income tax returns to match the federally extended tax filing date of July 15, 2020. The Ohio Revised Code provides that cities/villages within Ohio will follow the State’s tax filing date so this means the Tipp City local income tax filing date will be extended from April 15, 2020 to July 15, 2020. 2019 local income tax returns filed on or before July 15, 2020 will be considered timely filed and will not be subject to late filing penalties or interest. Please contact the City tax department if you have any questions, concerns, or need additional information.

Residents are encouraged to file their 2019 income tax returns online at www.tippcityohio.gov. Estimated payments and credits (totals only) can be viewed at https://www.municonnect.com/tippcity/login.aspx with the proper account information. If you would like for the tax department staff to prepare your Tipp City return, we ask that you place your W-2(s) and page one of your federal return in an envelope marked “Income Tax” along with your name and place it in the Utility night deposit. Upon returning, we will prepare your Tipp City income tax return and mail a copy to you. For account information (account numbers, payments or credits) or other questions please email crosss@tippcity.net.

We are urging residents to follow the Ohio Department of Health’s recommendation to stay home as much as possible.

The situation will be monitored and updated as needed. Updates will be posted on Facebook, Twitter, City’s website, and other news media. We ask for your understanding and assistance in stopping the spread of this virus. Please protect yourself by using good hygiene practices every day. Keep yourself safe, and we thank you for your understanding during these most difficult times.
