The City of Bowling Green tax filing due date has been extended to May 17, 2021 for 2020 tax returns. Withholding payment and reporting is not affected by this change and is still due in the time frames stated in the Ohio Revised Code and Bowling Green City Ordinances.

The Bowling Green Income Tax Division requires a copy of your Federal tax return (Form 1040) and all W-2s. If you are claiming Bowling Green withholding or a credit for taxes paid to another municipality, your W-2 needs to report this withholding.

Income tax filings may be turned in using the drop box located outside the building or mailed in. Staff will frequently check the drop box throughout the business day (Monday through Friday, 8:00 am – 4:30 pm).

Those who are planning to file income tax returns in person are strongly encouraged to do so well in advance of the deadline in order to avoid long lines.
