February 12, 2004  -  Columbus, Ohio  - Richmond Heights School District Residents Advised to Disregard Estimated Tax Notice

Columbus -- (February 12, 2004) The Ohio Department of Taxation (ODT) is advising residents of the Richmond Heights School District (Cuyahoga County) who recently received notice of a filing requirement for estimated school district income tax to disregard the notice. There is no school district income tax in Richmond Heights.

The packets were sent because ODT had been incorrectly informed that voters in the district had approved a school district income tax. Voters instead had approved a property tax.

The process of mailing the estimated tax payment booklets had begun before the voting results were clarified.

The estimated tax payment booklets were sent to approximately 700 residents of the school district. ODT is sending a letter to each alerting them that the tax packet was sent in error and apologizing for any inconvenience.

If any residents have made an estimated payment because of the mailing, they are being asked to call ODT at (614) 433-7602 to arrange a return of the payment.
