The City of Monroe Tax Office provides local filing for residents at no cost. Penalties and interest apply for any outstanding tax liability not paid by the due date.
Please refer to the Required Tax Documents for information on what the Tax Office requires for processing.
Due to the volume of returns mailed in and dropped off, the Tax Office processes those returns that are eligible for a refund first, in the order they have been received, followed by all other returns. This can cause a delay for those that may have a tax liability and can result in higher penalty and interest for unpaid tax liabilities.
We know that receiving refunds in a timely manner is important to our taxpayers. We process refund requests in the order received and strive to issue refunds within 90 days of receipt of all required documents. If a return is missing required documents, the auditor sends a letter to the taxpayer requesting any additional information needed to complete the return. This may result in a delay depending upon when the taxpayer submits the requested documents.
