Covid-19 Refund Requests 

On March 9, 2020, Governor DeWine declared a Covid-19, State of Emergency in Ohio. (Executive Order 2020-01D).

By law, nonresident employees of Alliance employers continue to have Alliance city income taxes withheld from their pay throughout the state of emergency, and for thirty days thereafter: “any day on which an employee performs personal services at a location, including the employee’s home, to which the employee is required to report for employment duties because of the declaration shall be deemed to be a day performing personal services at the employee’s principal place of work.” (Make technical and corrective changes to tax law, H.B. 197 Section 29, 133rd GA – 2020). 

This law is being challenged. (Buckeye Institute, et al., v. Columbus City Auditor, et al, Franklin County Common Pleas Court Case No. 20-CV-04301). 

A claim for a refund of the Alliance tax withheld from Covid-19 earnings for work from home or another location may not be available until the challenge is fully litigated. The City of Alliance, Income Tax Division will hold your refund request in a suspended status until the litigation is concluded.

Should the conclusion of the litigation determine that a refund is allowed, your claim will be processed at that time. Should the conclusion find that a refund is not allowed, you will receive a notice that the refund is not available to you.

Please contact our department at (330)-821-9190 with any questions.

 

City of Cleveland Central Collection Agency (CCA)

The City of Alliance Income Tax Department has entered into a contract with the City of Cleveland Central Collection Agency (CCA) to use federal income tax information to identify potential taxpayers for the City of Alliance. CCA will be mailing letters to taxpayers in a green envelope on CCA letterhead. If you receive a letter, you will need to follow the directions and/or contact CCA with any questions. The City of Alliance does not have access to the IRS records and therefore, cannot answer any questions.

Please do not ignore this letter; this is a valid attempt to identify if you should be filing tax returns with the City of Alliance Income Tax Department.
