Some Mentor residents may have recently received a letter from RITA (Regional Income Tax Agency). With respect to the amount of fraudulent mail that is often received, we want to let you know that this letter is legitimate and is being sent to tax payers who may have missed filing a municipal tax return in recent years.
You may not owe any income tax and may have simply forgotten to file, but if you have received the letter, please follow the enclosed instructions. Not responding to the letter will likely result in a formal subpoena.
RITA maintains a local office on the First Floor of the Mentor Municipal Center, with hours limited to Tuesday and Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 1:30 to 5:00 p.m. No appointment is necessary.
For additional information, you can also call 800-860-7482 or visit the City of Mentor Municipal Income Tax page.
