Bagged leaves should be placed by the curbs no later than 8:00am on November 15.

Volunteers are being sought, including those who have trucks and trailers that can be used to haul leaves to one of the two drop off sights. Those who wish to volunteer can register online by following the link on the Mayor’s page of the City of Findlay website: www.findlayohio.com or by contacting Kathy Launder in the Mayor’s Office at 419-424-7137. Volunteers will obtain additional information on locations, times, and resources once registered.

As in past years, Findlay will be separated into sections, with volunteer teams responsible for their section.

Mayor Lydia Mihalik is again proud to have this as part of a community project. “This community project is a testament to the true character of our city and residents alike,” she said. “Each year we see passion displayed, pride presented, and witness an overall sense of community as we each do our part to keep Findlay great.”

A city map that shows how areas are divided is displayed on the Mayor’s page of the City of Findlay website at www.findlayohio.com. Volunteers can specify which section or sections they would prefer to cover.

Third Period Estimate Payments Due For Findlay And Arlington - 10/28/2014
October 28, 2014
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Andrew Thomas, Income Tax Administrator
Phone: 419-424-7133
Email: athomas@findlayohio.com

Third Period Estimate Payments Due For Findlay And Arlington

Third period estimate payments for Findlay and Arlington individuals are due Friday, October 31. Vouchers for all four estimate periods are available on the Tax Department’s website at findlaytaxforms.com.

To avoid an annual interest charge of 18 percent, Findlay and Arlington taxpayers must make 2014 estimate payments if they will owe $100 or more in addition to the tax that will be withheld from their wages. The goal is to pay 100 percent of the 2013 tax or 90 percent of the 2014 tax.

The tax is due as the income is earned. Self-employed individuals and residents who work outside of Findlay are most likely to be affected by the estimate payment requirement. Effective January 2009 the credit granted to Findlay residents who work and pay income tax in other communities was eliminated.

Third quarter 2014 employer withholding remittances are also due the 31st.

Findlay and Arlington payments can be placed in the drop box located near the entrance to the Municipal Building parking lot on West Crawford Street. The Tax Department is located on the first floor in room 115 of the Municipal Building. Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

For assistance or additional forms, call 419-424-7133 or visit www.findlaytaxforms.com.
