Our mission is to assist and provide the means necessary to administer and collect a City income tax according to City ordinance while complying with Ohio Revised Code.
Our goal is make this process as quick and efficient as possible for our valued taxpayers. We try to accomplish this by utilizing modern tax software with an up to the date computer network system (5 active workstations) that facilitates the filing and payment process and also greatly reduces the chance of error.
Due to cost saving measures, effective January 1, 2010 electronic filing of city income tax will not be available in the City of Struthers. Check below for city tax forms.
NOTE: 2106 employee deductions will not be applied unless a Schedule A, 2106 form and the first 2 pages of your Federal 1040 form is submitted with the 2106 form.
The Tax Department is always willing to work with the taxpayer and we stress that if there are any questions or concerns to please contact the office any time from Monday-Friday from 8:00 A.M. - 4:00 P.M.
