Earned Income and Net Profits Tax

Local Tax Return is Due April 17

It’s that time of year again. The 2017 local earned income tax return filing deadline is approaching. The due date is extended to Tuesday April 17 this year because April 15 is taking place on Sunday and April 16 is a federal holiday.
