Stow Income Tax Department:







The City of Stow is expanding its efforts to collect income taxes owed to the City by some Stow taxpayers.

The City of Stow requires mandatory filing of taxes by its residents and non-residents that have income from rental, business or activities in Stow and has contracted with the Central Collection Agency of Cleveland to use IRS information to send those taxpayers who have not submitted their city income tax returns and to collect unpaid taxes.

By law, the City of Stow, as a city with a population under 250,000, does not have direct access to the IRS for federal taxpayer information. Central Collection Agency does have the ability to gather such data from the IRS, and it specializes in collecting municipal income taxes; serving approximately 50 jurisdictions in Ohio.
