TAX AMNESTY PLAN GETS RECOMMENDATION FROM NAPOLEON COMMITTEE
With advances in technology, it’s tougher to hide when you don’t pay taxes. Despite that, Napoleon City Council knows there are residents who pay Ohio and Federal income taxes; but might be failing to file a city income tax form. Napoleon city officials have access to those residents, and will be sending notices of money that is owed. But during the Monday meeting of the council ‘finance and budget’ committee, the group came-up with a plan to help residents pay that money back. A so-called ‘amnesty’ period would be set-up, if approved by the full body of Napoleon Council, they would waive the late fee for residents that come forward and file those city income tax returns. Napoleon’s finance and budget committee recommended November be set-aside as a 4-week amnesty period for that tax payback. This recommendation will go before the full Napoleon Council at their first meeting in September.
