Welcome to the City of Columbus Income Tax E-File/E-Pay system. At this site, employers are able to electronically file and pay Semi-Monthly/Monthly Deposits of Tax Withheld and Quarterly Returns of Tax Withheld. Additionally, individuals and businesses are able to electronically file and pay the Application for Extension form as well as the forms for the Declaration of Estimated Taxes and related quarterly payment vouchers. Though this site cannot currently be used for the electronic filing of the annual returns of taxpayers we hope to have that feature available in the future.
