Electronic Filing and Credit Card Payment

E-File Option

*Please pay special attention: The begin date for EFile service is estimated to be February 1, 2020. You will be unable to log in until then. Thank you for your patience.

You may file electronically, or "EFile," in the following situations. Please note that you may have to mail a hard copy of your income tax return as discussed below:

  • You are reporting income from a W2 that shows Warren tax withheld, no Warren tax withheld, or if you have 1099 income. You are not required to mail a hard copy of your return.
  • You are reporting income from a W2 and tax is being withheld for a city other than Warren. However, you are required to mail copies of all W2's.
  • You may Efile if you have income reported on any Federal Schedule such as C, E, K-1, 1099. You are required to mail in the return and all applicable schedules.
