Extension to File

Taxpayers who are granted a Federal or State extension are automatically granted an extension to file their Trenton tax return. While the Ohio Revised Code does not require the taxpayer to notify the local tax office, it is recommended to do so.


Notifying the tax office of the extension prior to filing the return is encouraged for the following reasons:

  • It helps the Tax Office to more effectively utilize tax revenue, which is mutually beneficial to the city and the community it serves.
  • It helps to keep the Tax Office accounts in a current status.
  • It reduces unnecessary correspondence to residents.

A COPY of the Federal extension must be attached to the city return when filed. An extension of time to file under this chapter is NOT an extension of the time to pay any tax due unless the Income Tax Commissioner grants an extension of that date
