Taxes Made Easy
The City of Dublin has introduced new measures in 2020 to make income tax filing easier and more accessible to all residents.
For the first time, instructions for completing Form DIR-1040 are now available in Japanese and Chinese, the top languages spoken by residents with limited English language proficiency, according to Census data. The professionally translated versions provide better transparency for those who wish to learn about the process in their native language. Residents are still required to file their taxes in English.
Returning this year is the City’s E-File tool, a convenient and secure way to file taxes online. Around two thirds of residents still opt for traditional filing, amounting to an estimated 100,000 sheets of paper annually. This year, the City of Dublin is encouraging residents to save paper and skip the printing, writing, envelopes, stamps and checks. Instead, file and pay your taxes online using E-File.
This spring, the Division of Taxation will move to the new City Hall located at 5555 Perimeter Drive. Taxpayers can expect the same high quality service with the addition of new features like a drive-up drop-off secure mailbox. An exact move-in date has not been announced.
