Individual NRL Billing Notice ID#4001

Our records indicate you filed a return and did not pay the tax due in full by April 15. Interest has been added. Submit additional information and/or payment within 30 days from the date on the notice.

I disagree with the penalties.

The Ohio return is due no later than April 15. Ohio law provides for the imposition of interest and possibly a late filing penalty when the return and/or payment are late.

I cannot pay this bill in full at this time.

Ohio law does not authorize the Department of Taxation to set up a payment plan. We will apply partial payments to the outstanding balance. However, partial payments will not stop the imposition of additional interest or the referral of the account to the Attorney General's Office, (collection agent for the State of Ohio). You must submit information and/or payment within 30 days from the date on the notice to the Ohio Dept. of Taxation, Billing, P.O. Box 182401, Columbus, Ohio 43218-2401

I have already paid this bill.

Please send us a legible copy of the front and back of your cancelled check. If you paid by credit card, please indicate the confirmation number and the amount of the payment on the bill stub. Upon receipt, we will make a determination on the status of the bill. Forward this information to the Ohio Department of Taxation, Billing Section, P.O. Box 182401, Columbus, Ohio 43218-2401. Submit additional information and/or payment within 30 days from the date on the notice.
