Everyone needs to file a return - if they owe tax or not. The only exception to the rule is any individual who does not have “taxable” income. For example, people who live and work in Fairport Harbor need to file, people who work outside of Fairport Harbor and reside in Fairport Harbor need to file, and any resident or non-resident who has scheduled (C,E,F) income within Fairport Harbor needs to file. Retirees who are truly retired and have no taxable income need to file an exemption.

Taxpayers can simply e-file returns at, or mail or fax to RITA the documents listed on the non-filing letter. Call 440-526-0900 if you have questions.
