Please Donate Your Masks & Surgical Gloves

No Soliciting
The Mentor Police Department has advised registered solicitors that all permits have been suspended until further notice.  Non-profits are asked to cease door-to-door solicitations until further notice.

City Tax Filings
Consistent with the recently announced Federal Tax extension, city tax filings are expected to be extended to July 15, 2020. A State House Bill has been introduced recommending the extension for State of Ohio tax filings. Local Tax Rules for the City of Mentor will automatically follow the State adopted extended tax due dates.  In-person assistance has been suspended until further notice.
