Online Tax Preparation Tool

notesThe City of Centerville offers an online tax calculation tool for local income taxes. This is an easy tool to calculate and prepare your City tax return for filing with the tax office. At this time, we are not able to offer electronic filing (that is, you must submit paper documents after using the on-line tool). After completing the process using the tax preparation tool, please print the tax return, attach your W-2’s and any supporting federal schedules, and submit to the City for filing. You will need your social security number to get started and then you will assign your own PIN.

Please contact the Income Tax Department with questions.

Tax Department staff will prepare your Centerville tax return in the office, at no charge, and will also be happy to assist you on the telephone. Download tax forms.
